Discussion: Can Latvia afford strong public service media?

A conference on December 13 is discussing a subject close to our own hearts: can Latvia afford strong public service media?

Without wishing to pre-empt the conclusions, we hope the answer is "Yes" and that more details will be given on how to achieve it.  

The event runs from 14:00 Rīga time (12:00 GMT) until approximately 17:00.

Jānis Juzefovičs, a media scientist from the University of Tartu, will present the results of research titled “Public Service Media and Society: Attitudes, Views, and Expectations. Study into Audience of the Latvian Television and Latvian Radio”.

After the presentation, managers of public broadcasters and representatives of the Parliament and other involved institutions will discuss the process of approval of a new law on public service media governance in the Saeima.
The discussion will take place in Latvian (with live translation into English).
