This presentation will provide an overview of trends in media
globalisation and consider what they may mean for national media and
cultural policies. it will argue for the ongoing significance of
governments and policies as being, along with cultural forces, major
filters of the media globalisation process. At the same time, by noting
the rise of sub-national (e.g. city-based or state-based) and
supra-national policy forums and decision-making processes, it will ask
whether we now need to draw a line between nationally-based media and
cultural policy formations as they developed in the 20th century, and
emergent forms whose significance may increase in the 21st century.
