Ethnic Media in UK & Europe
The national remains a context of great importance. British history of migration and ethnicity, multiculturalism and media policies have commonalities and differences compared to other European countries. Considering what is unique in the case of the UK can help us understand why minority media cultures develop in this country the ways they do; it allows us to examine how important legislation, history and national particularity are; it assists us in drawing conclusion about processes of exclusion and inclusion and the significance of policies and politics of and for minorities and the media. Furthermore, in comparing the national reports across the EU we can see more clearly how settings, agendas and trends are shaped within and across Europe.
