This book as a whole studies the political rationalities associated with the different uses of media pluralism in recent media policy debates, especially within the European Union. The first part focused on different theories of democracy and the public space, as well as their implications for conceptualizing pluralism as a media policy goal; while the latter part discussed the actual uses and definitions of media pluralism in contemporary media policy practice. The concept of media pluralism should be understood not in terms of regulatory means, but of basic normative principles. Media policy research needs more intellectual resources, such as recent debates on contemporary political philosophy and democratic theory, in order to discuss the efficacy of different media regulatory means.
