Abstract: Recently, in Europe and elsewhere, a trend towards more evidencebased and risk-based regulation has been noticeable. Such an approach ensures
that regulation is applied only where it is needed. In this light, the European
Commission’s strategy for media pluralism has shifted from regulating to monitoring. According to the European Commission, the development of a neutral
and objective monitoring mechanism could enhance the auditability of media
pluralism. This instrument would equip policy makers and regulatory authorities with the tools to detect and manage societal risks in this area and provide
them with a stronger evidentiary basis to define priorities and actions for improving media pluralism within the EU. This paper will elaborate on the instrument that has been developed for such monitoring exercises: the EU Media
Pluralism Monitor, which functions like a barometer and starts from a riskbased approach.
