Mechanisms for Setting Broadcasting Funding Levels…
01 Dec 2005

In October 2005 the Ministry commissioned Unitec New Zealand to prepare a report on mechanisms for setting funding levels in OECD as part of the broadcasting 2005 Programme of Action work.

The report’s introductory section describes the research aims and objectives/delimitations of the project and the methodology used. A substantial section of the report examines public service broadcasting and funding arrangements in 30 OECD countries to provide a context for examining funding setting mechanisms. This is followed by analysis of mechanisms for setting and collecting/distributing public funding; an overview of key issues and common policy themes concerning funding mechanisms for public broadcasting in the OECD; and analysis of mechanisms for setting and collecting/distributing funding for public broadcasters.

The research includes an examination of all 30 OECD countries; providing an overview of the different broadcasting and funding arrangements currently in place in each country.
