Challenges of a media-rich world

The media are flooding the world with messages. Who determines the contents of these messages? Who influences what we see, hear or read? These are central questions in ‘Challenges of a Media-Rich World’, one of the chapters taken from the report Our Creative Diversity. The complete text of the report is on this site. (Click for the other chapters in the right-hand bar.) You can also find a summary of the chapter on this site. Should pornographic or violent messages be censured? What is the role of the government in this? Should they interfere?

Raymond van den Boogaard en Jean-Pierre Guépin wrote a reaction to this report. Their reactions and those of three other publicists are to be found under the heading ‘comments’. At the conference The Power of Culture, which took place in November 1996, there was a panel discussion about the theme. Members of this discussion were Madala Mphalele, David Nostbakken, Horst Stipp and Bert Mulder.
