This paper probes into the institutional arrangements and the processes through which state and non-state actors engage with and define media policy in Greece. The development of the media and media regulation in Greece has been characterized for years by strong state intervention mostly in the pursuit of particularistic interests. Presently, technological developments and straitened economic conditions transform the media context and create potential for a re-appraisal of the state’s media policy. Drawing on recent regulatory developments concerning the passage to digital terrestrial television and the restructuring of public audiovisual media services, the analysis identifies and discusses the main features of the policy-making process, focusing on its institutional stability, policy objectives, accessibility, transparency and sources of information.
