The Legal & Policy Assembly brings together senior legal and policy experts from across the EBU Membership. It is a forum for updating Members on latest developments impacting public service media in Europe and beyond, as well as an opportunity for sharing experiences and networking.
This Autumn, we have had a more in-depth look at regulatory and ethical issues raised by Artificial Intelligence and we have also had a special focus on ensuring prominence of PSM in the online world. These two subjects have been presented by particularly interesting guest speakers :
Artificial Intelligence: Lucilla Sioli (European Commission), Alexandre Rouxel (EBU), Léonard Bouchet (RTS), Rhianne Jones (BBC) and Natali Helberger (Amsterdam University).
Prominence of PSM on the Internet Media Platform: Kevin Bakhurst (Ofcom/UK), Lieven Vermaele (VRT) and Renate Dörr (ZDF).
Members have also been updated with current and future platform regulation and policy subjects and have received the latest news about the EBU Public Affairs Roadmap and future EU priorities.
As announced, two new Members of the Legal and Policy Committee have been elected to complete two vacant seats. The newly elected Members of the Legal and Policy Committee are  Alan Morrison (SR, Sweden) and Ronald Vecht (NPO, Netherlands).
