Good governance of public service media, serving the interests of society as a whole, is actively supported by the EBU, in line with the Core PSM Values adopted by the General Assembly in 2012. Good governance can help PSM organisations meet new challenges as they carry out their vital role in the new media ecosystem. The aim of this Legal Focus, as a non-binding source of guidance and reference, is to identify and develop a number of fundamental principles for PSM governance.
Legal Focus publications are part of the EBU's effort to produce practical tools to help Members in a period of rapid change. The governance principles complement the public funding principles published in February 2015.
