Online survey on the situation of the local press in Germany
The Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM) has commissioned DIW Econ GmbH to study the current situation of the local German press.
The study aims to create a comprehensive picture of the local German press and, in particular, to analyze the challenges and opportunities arising from increasing digitization. In addition, the study will evaluate the extent to which current developments are endangering the diversity of the press and opinions and whether a need for state support can be derived from this. Finally, the study will examine which government funding measures could effectively support the local German press and thus also press and opinion diversity.
