The seventh RIPE Reader investigates cross-boundary influences affecting publicservice media. PSM institutions remain domestically grounded and orientated,but must cope with international influences and the impact of globalisation. This presentssignificant environmental challenges keyed to policies that support networkedcommunications which have important implications for the future of broadcasting.Meanwhile, internal institutional boundaries pose challenges to internal collaborationand synergy, and to achieving greater openness and cultivating public participation inPSM. Traditional boundaries between professional and non-professional productionare often problematic, as well, for external collaboration. And there are enormouschallenges in efforts to bridge boundaries between PSM and other public institutions(public sector), social movements (civil and volunteer sector) and companies (privatesector). Cross-boundary phenomena offer tremendous opportunities for ensuringpublic service provision in the emerging media ecology, but managers and policymakersmust grapple with a range of dualities that require critical examination: public/ private, national / international, broadcast / print, linear / non-linear, audience /user, production / distribution, citizen / consumer, and market / society. The scholarlycontributions in this volume address issues that are relevant for improved understandingsabout Public Service Media Across Borders and Boundaries – a contemporary topic ofkeen theoretical and strategic importance.
