Peer-to-peer Review on PSM Values: RTBF

The following report assesses the management practices and content quality of Radio-télévision belge de la Communauté française (RTBF) according to the public service values defined by the EBU in Strasbourg in 2012. The report is based on RTBF’s self-assessment combined with the on-site visit by an international group of peers in Brussels on April 20 & 21 2015.

The objectives of the report are to:

Provide RTBF with a statement on its current situation, including highlights on best practices and suggestions for improvement
Give other media organizations comparative tools to improve their in-house processes, develop best practices, and improve their own understanding of public service values

RTBF is the fourth EBU Member to undertake the public service values review.

This report reflects the peers’ observations, opinions and suggestions after their visit. It starts with general comments and then outlines RTBF’s performance on all of the six public service values (universality, independence, excellence, diversity, accountability, and innovation). It highlights best practices (actions, ideas, activities, programmes) that could be used as a model by all EBU Members.
