Course Content (Syllabus)
This course aims to teach the constitutional and legal aspects of broadcasting media (radio and television) as well as New media. First we examine the constitutional dimension of public and private television and the legal framework of the National Broadcasting Independent Authority. Then we study how the existing constitutional and legal framework applies to New Media and social networks, whether these rules are sufficient to regulate new media phenomenon and if there is a necessity to set a new legal framework in this field.
