2011 Milton Wolf Seminar

March 23, 2011 - March 25, 2011

Diplomatic Academy of Vienna

The 2011 Milton Wolf Seminar addressed diplomatic efforts to shape the form and content of the domestic media and communications environments of a variety of states that are experiencing stress, instability, and pressure on sovereignty. These activities are not without
controversy. The same asymmetrical power relationships that dictate international relations in general also influence the ability of states to determine the structure of their own information spaces and to participate in the processes of negotiations and rulemaking that influence global information flows.

Visiting Scholar Discussion: Paolo Cavaliere

March 14, 2011
12:00PM - 01:00PM

Annenberg School for Communication, Room 300

“I Am the Fourth Estate”. Leaderism and mediatization of politics: the case of Italy Cavaliere will take a different look at the Italian industry of media; the story of its development can also be read as an example of what happens when market force is not constrained by any kind of regulation. The current highly concentrated market, where there is essentially one private competitor to the public broadcaster, has shaped the Italian information landscape in a unique way when compared to the American or European equivalents. In the endless debate on freedom of speech, political information, scarcity of frequencies and pluralism, the case of Italy can tell us something about how much ownership matters in biasing the news and driving the thoughts of a whole society. Paolo Cavaliere is a joint visiting scholar at Penn Law School and CGCS.  He earned a PhD in International Law and Economics at Bocconi University in Milan, Italy. As a Teaching Fellow, he has taught Public Law, Italian and European Constitutional Law, Media Law, Regional Law and Constitutional Justice. He also holds a law degree from the University of Pavia and an LLM in Public Law from University College, London. Please RSVP by Friday, March 11 at noon. Lunch will be provided on a first come, first served basis.
