the website hunmedialaw.org was created by media experts committed to the promotion of press freedom in Hungary and the media regulation rooted in European traditions. The purpose of the website is to continuously monitor and document the state and content of Hungarian press freedom and media regulation adopted at the end of 2010.
Our website fulfills this function by publishing information and studies connected to the Hungarian media regulation. The editors of the continuously updated and growing website will process and publish the decisions and practice of the National Media and Infocommunications Authority and the Media Council. They will also carry out analyses and prepare studies and, in addition, collect the studies and reviews published elsewhere by other authors.
A goal of the website is to place the Hungarian media regulation and press freedom in a larger, European context by performing comparative analysis.
The editors always prepare and select the publications on the website in accordance with professional standards independent from any economic or political pressure. Their objective is to openly serve and promote the professional and public debate on press freedom and media regulation.
The content of the website is also available in Hungarian at www.mediatorveny.hu.
