Eric Karstens 1 Year, 8 Months, 2 Weeks, 9 Hours, 55 Minutes ago

How the EU can help journalism NEW
Eric Karstens 2 Years, 4 Weeks, 18 Hours, 15 Minutes ago

The EU, its neighbours, and journalism revolution NEW
Eric Karstens 2 Years, 9 Months, 3 Hours, 34 Minutes ago
The transition to a free and democratic media system in formerly authoritarian countries may be almost as difficult for the revolutionaries themselves as it typically is for the former mouthpieces of defunct regimes. Can the European Union help? Rela...
Vordenkerrolle: Zum Innovationsbedarf der Medienanstalten NEW
Eric Karstens 3 Years, 1 Month, 1 Week, 2 Days, 5 Hours, 50 Minutes ago
Die Landesmedienanstalten beharren auf liebgewonnenen Denkfiguren und rufen nach strengeren Vorschriften, wenn die Welt sich ändert. Doch ihrer Sinn- und Identitätskrise könnten sie mit dem begegnen, was Odo Marquardt einst "Inkompetenzkompensatio...
The art of EU procurement NEW
Eric Karstens 3 Years, 1 Month, 3 Weeks, 4 Days, 7 Hours, 5 Minutes ago
The EU has masterminded the very rules of public procurement, but it is also one of the largest tendering authorities itself. The scope of design of tenders is such that it may make or break entire companies and organisations, and affect the implemen...
Is blogging coming of age? NEW
Eric Karstens 3 Years, 3 Months, 2 Weeks, 5 Days, 10 Hours, 9 Minutes ago
Like so many things in our current media environment, accrediting bloggers alongside with journalists is more difficult, requires more effort, and entails more risks than sticking to the old ways. It is worth the while, though, seeing that blogging s...
Why I want my newspaper to go out of business NEW
Eric Karstens 3 Years, 5 Months, 4 Weeks, 19 Hours, 42 Minutes ago

The EU’s Digital Agenda (part III): Stakeholders Day NEW
Eric Karstens 3 Years, 8 Months, 3 Weeks, 6 Days, 4 Hours, 48 Minutes ago

The EU’s Digital Agenda (part II): Megalomania or Jack of all Trades? NEW
Eric Karstens 3 Years, 8 Months, 4 Weeks, 10 Hours, 57 Minutes ago
