Situational analysis in preparation of the Belgian EU presidency in 2024 with regard to media policy

With the prospect of the Belgian presidency of the Council of the European Union in 2024 and in a context of increasing complexity (and transversality) of audiovisual and media policy within the EU, the Brussels School of Governance at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel will provide the Flemish Government, Department of Culture, Youth and Media, with a mapping of the experts and relevant stakeholders within the competent authorities at Flemish and Belgian levels, in the French and German speaking communities, in the European Commission, in the audiovisual and media sector, and this for the themes laid out in the Media and Audiovisual Action Plan and the European Democracy Action Plan. The research team will also provide recommendations on methods or concrete consultation structures to follow up on these themes within Flanders and Belgium, with the aim to speed up and ease coordination during the presidency. This consultation platform would be supporting and complementary to existing formal consultation structures.
