Welcome to the collaborative wiki site of the International Media Concentration project, hosted by the Columbia Institute for Tele-Information with the participation of other institutions and scholars.

 

Table of Contents 


 

Introduction

Media concentration is a controversial subject. One side focuses on media empires and their negative impacts. The other side believes the Internet as having opened media to unprecedented diversity. The goal of our project is to go beyond the rhetoric to an academic, empirical, dispassionate, and data-driven analysis of trends and their drivers. We have no agenda beyond understanding what is happening and why, and no preconceived notion as to the results.

 

Project Team and Approach

We seek to bring together scholars from about thirty countries. (See below the list of our team members). We will follow a basic common methodology for each country and a parallel work schedule. In the process we aim to create an international community of scholars. The international dimension is essential, since in every country there are special circumstances that may obscure the broader trends. The organizational structure of the project will be led by a scientific committee composed of three regional leaders:

Scope

We use a quantitative approach based on market share data for major media industries, for a period of about 20 years. For a more detailed description of our methodological framework, see the Methodology section.

 

Schedule

The time schedule would be a first draft by early 2009; a second draft and conference in mid 2009. A final manuscript by the end of the summer of 2009.
