The programme is designed to explore fundamental changes taking place in the news industries in modern democracies, elucidate the underlying causes and process of these changes and identify emerging opportunities for the news industries. It also aims to produce policy recommendations regarding the economic viability of newspaper publishing and the erosion of news in public service broadcasting.
