Abstract:

This paper begins with the deconstruction of an erroneous generalization that is at the root of recent misunderstandings about the nature of media systems in European new democracies. The erroneous generalization presumes that all post-socialist media systems can be grouped together in one and the same media system model (Terzis, 2007, Jakubowicz, 2007, Curran and Park 2000, Puppis et al 2009, Voltmer 2008), solely on the basis of their common socialist experience (cf. Peruško 2013). This article examines media performance in southeast Europe through the optics of a new theoretical model. The model distinguishes between three distinctive historical periods in the development of media systems, consequences of three most important critical junctures – modernization and democratic revolutions in the 19th century, the socialist period, and the post-socialist period of new democracies. The five dimensional theoretical framework of Hallin and Mancini (2004) is expanded with the approach of historical institutionalism and path dependency, as well as in regard to the additional performance indicators of UNESCO Media Development Indicators. The paper wishes to provide an explanation for the differences or similarities in media performance in the countries in the region, which had been republics/federal units in one country (Yugoslavia) during their socialist histories, and thus contribute also to the understanding of the impact of different formative historical periods on the contemporary media systems and their performance (not least of which is the socialist period itself).
