Welcome to the International Media Concentration project, hosted by the Columbia Institute for Tele-Information



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. We are a collective of scholars from around the world who are inclined towards research rather than public argument.


The international dimension is essential, since in every country there are special circumstances that may obscure the broader trends. 



Project Description

We seek to bring together scholars from about twenty countries. 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.
