The Media Freedom Survey: Evaluation of Media Freedom Indicators by Worldwide Experts

  • Laura SchneiderEmail author


The evaluation of the potential indicators for media freedom by worldwide experts, which is the subject of this chapter, has two main goals: first, to determine which indicators should be included in the Media Freedom Analyzer and how these should be weighted. Second, the survey aims at finding out whether there is empirical evidence for cultural differences with regard to media freedom; i.e. whether the media freedom concept differs significantly between world regions and if so, what these differences are. Consequently, this chapter answers the second research question as well as important aspects of the third research question.
