Peer-to-peer Review on PSM Values: Etablissement de Radiodiffusion Socioculturelle du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg (ERSL)

The following report assesses the management practices of the Etablissement de Radiodiffusion Socioculturelle du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg (ERSL) and the quality of the content it provides, according to the public service values defined by the EBU in 2012 in Strasbourg. The report is based on the self-assessment performed by ERSL combined with the on-site review carried out in Luxembourg by an international peer group on 24-25 January 2018.

The objectives of this report are to:

  1. Provide ERSL with a statement on its current situation, highlighting best practices as well as areas for improvement
  2. Provide ERSL with recommendations and suggestions to help the media organization adapt to the challenges it faces and shape its strategy for the period 2018-2022
  3. Provide other media organizations with tools to improve their internal processes, develop best practices and challenge their own understanding of public service values

This report reflects the peers’ observations, opinions and suggestions further to their analysis of ERSL's self-assessment and their on-site review. It starts with general comments. This is followed by an overview of ERSL's performance in line with the six public service values (universality, independence, excellence, diversity, accountability and innovation). It highlights best practices (actions, ideas, activities, programmes) that could serve as a model for other EBU Members.
