Nordic Talks: The Value of a Free Press

Norway is number one the World Press Freedom Index, while Australia dropped 14 places in 2022 due in part to its highly concentrated media landscape.

This webinar, the second of our special Nordic Talks webinar series, will explore how Norway’s targeted ‘press support’ subsidies could help Australia to achieve greater diversity in its highly concentrated media landscape and improve its protections for public interest journalism. And what can Norway learn from Australia’s world-leading News Media Bargaining Code about regulating Big Tech platforms such as Google and Facebook?

Join Professor Eli Skogerbø from the University of Oslo, and Dr Maria Rae of Deakin University for a fascinating discussion hosted by deputy director Ebony Bennett for the Nordic Policy Centre at the Australia Institute, as part of Nordic Talks. #NordicTalks #auspol
