The European and Global Dimension. Taking Small Media Systems Research to the Next Level


Puppis, M; d'Haenens, L; Steinmaurer, T; Künzler, M (2009). The European and Global Dimension. Taking Small Media Systems Research to the Next Level. International Communication Gazette, 71(1-2):105-112.

Abstract

State size matters. However, small states do not only share structural peculiarities but also feature different political and historic traditions. This helps explain why the connection between smallness and media regulation is far from clear. Thus, it is suggested here to amend existing typologies of media systems with the notion of smallness, which would allow for more systematic comparative research. In addition, future research on small states needs to consider issues of Europeanization and globalization, examining the role of small states in decision-making on the supranational and international level.
