Lessons for Leveson: What can we learn from press regulation elsewhere?

With Steve Hewlett, Stewart Purvis, Professor John Horgan (Irish Press Ombudsman) & Lara Fielden


Much of the debate around the Leveson Inquiry has been almost entirely focused on UK experience. The Reuters Institute and the Open Society Media Program invite you to an event to mark the launch of the first comparative study of international press councils designed to inform the Leveson Inquiry and the wider debate on UK press reform.

 

Regulating the Press: A comparative study of international press councils is a wide-ranging report by Reuters Institute Visiting Fellow, Lara Fielden. It confronts some of the sharpest issues facing the future of press regulation in the UK, and reveals how these are tackled overseas.

 

  • Issues examined in the report include:
  • How do overseas regulators deal with the 'Desmond problem' and stop publishers withdrawing from regulation?
  • Who funds press regulation overseas - the industry, the state or some combination?
  • Can overseas regulators sanction through fines or imprisonment?
  • How independent and accountable are press councils elsewhere?
  • Do regulators outside the UK see themselves as complaints bodies or do they actively promote and audit ethical standards?
  • What are international approaches to convergence across print, broadcast and new media?

 

Copies of the Report, which will be essential reading for all who are interested in this area, will be available at the event and thereafter from the RISJ website at:
