Abstract

This article discusses whether European or national level media policies are suitable for facilitating a Europeanisation of national cultural public spheres. It is argued that current EU media policy initiatives and the activities of globally operating private corporations (e.g. Netflix, HBO) cannot achieve transnational cultural co-imbrication, strengthen horizontal ties among citizen from different countries, or increase the social inclusivity of public spheres. National public service media have a potential to do so as, but only to a limited extent, because in many EU countries they face financial, competitive, managerial and political pressures binding them to nationally delimited roles. Nevertheless, drawing on examples of PSM successes in fostering a Europeanisation and normative debates on transnational public spheres, ideals for a network of European PSM are presented, which offer a vision of PSM that (re)legitimise themselves as key players in the building and accessibility of Europeanised public spheres for EU cohesion.
