What is the
Media Policy Lab?

The Media Policy Lab is a project initiated by the media authority Berlin-Brandenburg (mabb) which concentrates on questions about network policy and digital media pluralism. Against the background of digital change, state media authorities need to face the safeguarding of media pluralism in a new way. To fulfil this important task, the Media Policy Lab connects scientific expertise with debates about network policy.
