Vision Document. The Digital Single Market
Philip Schlesinger (collaboration of A, Uzelac & C. Waelde)
The Digital Single Market is a key plank of EU policy in the cultural field. The pursuit of a ‘level playing-field’ for the circulation of cultural content in the digital space involves addressing significant tensions between the territorial principle and the supranational market principle. How this proposed transformation comes about is of wide relevance. It concerns Member States and European cultural actors but as the EU is a major international cultural market place it has wide ramifications for cultural trade and how this is connected to questions of collective identity.
