Public service media are going through dramatic transformations as a result of technological developments, policy changes, market pressures and changes in media consumption. A significant part of this transformation is connected to the enhanced and novel roles of audience initiative to use and generate content. The scale and significance of the changes are still contested and the future of the provisions remains unclear. This book synthesises current debates on public service media and provides analysis of the key issues from an international perspective. It brings together leading researchers in the field and offers case studies from different countries. The book explores two main areas: legacy public service broadcasters in the digital age and new forms of public service media. Chapters in this collection address such fundamental questions about the future of public service media as: are the public ready to take on genuinely participatory roles? Do public service media organisations and professionals seriously consider shifting to a radically more demand-oriented production? How would changes in public service media impact political discourses and landscapes?

The administrative officers of public and nonprofit organizations have become increasingly interested in marketing techniques during the 1990s. They reason that if commercial marketing methods can successfully move merchandise across the retail counter, those same techniques should be capable of creating a demand for such "social products" as energy conservation, women's rights, military enlistment, or day-care centers. The goal of this volume is to provide social sector executives with practical and effective guidelines on how to harness the power of marketing in order to improve service to their constituencies. Marketing the Public Sector builds upon two decades of research in social marketing and represents the current state of the art. The authors demonstrate how the principles developed in earlier studies can be applied in actual situations. Included here are case studies of marketing plans prepared for hospitals, political campaigns, Third World social change, and community foundations that proved to be as effective as those in the private sector. The case study approach is effectively supplemented by theoretical chapters that define first principles in essential matters such as product management, value determination, advertising, and analysis of market performance. This amalgamation of theory and application is suitable to middle-range social marketing sizes as well as full-scale projects that large agencies might undertake. The problems differ only in magnitude; no organization is too small or too large to adopt a consumer orientation. Marketing the Public Sector is not only a guide to marketing; it is also about communication, social change, propaganda, and education. It will be of great interest to sociologists; public sector administrators; and specialists in communications, public relations, fund-raising, and community affairs.
