How should public policy grapple with a constantly changing media environment? Can policy keep up with the pace of change? And if a free media is a pillar of democracy, what values should media regulation uphold?
Vice-Chancellor of the University of Melbourne, Professor Glyn Davis, is joined by the Director of the Centre for Advancing Journalism at the University of Melbourne, Dr Margaret Simons, and Swinburne University’s Professor Jock Given to discuss these complex issues around media policy and regulation in this episode of The Policy Shop podcast.

The Policy Shop is a monthly podcast where we discuss public policy and the way it affects Australia and the world.
Hosted every month by Professor Davis, each podcast, featuring national and international guests, will examine a different public policy subject.
The subject of media reform will also be examined in the next episode of The Policy Shop as the outgoing Managing Director of the ABC, Mark Scott, joins Professor Davis for a one-on-one interview.
