This background paper explores how the community media sector promotes media literacy and how this work can strengthen marginalised communities’ participation in the media environment and public discourse. Comparing five models of community media from Cyprus, Ireland, Luxembourg, Spain and the United Kingdom, it seeks to inform and inspire practitioners and policy-makers, highlighting a number of findings and policy responses that can help Council of Europe member States fully realise the potential of community media.
The paper was prepared for the Cyprus 2020 Council of Europe Ministerial Conference "Artificial Intelligence – Intelligent Politics. Challenges and opportunities for media and democracy".
