Waves in The Communication Flow. The Interplay of Constitution, Legislative, and Governmental Institutions in Mass Media


  • Haase, Fee-Alexandra


This is an international set of case studies in institutionalized communication control regarding Mass Media, comparing in the Constitution, written laws, and other national institutions the influence of the state regarding the production and function of mass communication and related values in different countries. Our interest is to demonstrate the differences between countries under the aspects of (1) National constitution and governmental institutions possibly providing guidelines in terms of the use and protection of communication, (2) National organizations that provide additional guidelines and (3) International organizations, for the use of such media in a country. The interplay of national constitution, legislative, and governmental institutions is the framework for the existence of national mass communication. This information flow can be promoted or prohibited by the framework of institutions named above. This article examines the extent and nature of the use of laws and constitutional systems with an interest in the methodology of comparative studies in constitutional law.
