17th Legal & Policy Assembly

The Legal & Policy Assembly met at Sveriges Radio headquarters, in Stockholm, on 9th and 10th May 2019 to update senior legal and policy Members on the latest developments impacting public service media in Europe and beyond, as well as to provide an opportunity for sharing experiences and networking.

This Spring, we focused on two main subjects. The first one concerned the debates and challenges PSM are currently facing in Europe, with presentations by David Levy (ex-Reuters Institutes for the Study of Journalism) and Séverine Schori-Vogt (SSR-SRG-GD). The second main focus was on Artificial Intelligence and the regulatory and ethical implications for PSM, with presentations by Tim Gordon (Best Practice AI), Jaakko Lempinen (YLE, Finnish public broadcaster) and Mariella Bastian (Institute for Information Law, IViR).

A detailed update on the Public Affairs roadmap was also provided, together with a broader update on the recent work of the EBU Legal & Policy Department, and a dedicated session on the new EU framework.  

Elections for a new Legal & Policy Committee were held for the period 2019-2021.
