Abstract

Utilising the eComitee platform, an active group of scholars and PSM experts discussed the future of Public Service Media and the Internet for a time period of two months. After the discussion in the four clusters was closed, Alessandro D’Arma, Christian Fuchs, Minna Horowitz, and Klaus Unterberger created a summary of the discussion. This summary is documented as chapter 5 in this chapter. Based on the summary, a first version of the Manifesto was created that was then further discussed on eComitee. This chapter is a scholarly foundation of the Manifesto that gives an overview of a range of issues concerning contemporary Public Service Media, the contemporary Internet, and the future of communication(s).
