The Nordic Edge: Media diversity

Professor Andrew Scott, Senator Sarah Hanson-Young, Dr Maria Rae & Ebony Bennett

Presented by the Nordic Policy Centre at the Australia Institute.

Australia has one of the most concentrated news media markets in the world and more than a hundred local and regional newspapers closed between 2008 and 2018. Do the Nordic countries offer lessons Australia could learn from to ensure we have a diverse media with a strong focus on public interest journalism?

Join Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young, Chair of the Senate inquiry into media diversity in Australia, as well as Andrew Scott (co-editor), Maria Rae and Ebony Bennett (co-authors) of new book The Nordic Edge, for a discussion of the future of Australia’s media. Part of Australia Institute TV.
