This book is a selection of
presentations held at annual meetings of CIBAR, the "Conference of International Broadcasters' Audience Research Services", in Washington, D.C. (2001)
and Stockholm (2002). Both these conferences took place in the aftermath of '9/11' and under the impression of an ever-growing number of technological
innovations - developments on a global scale that international broadcasting research must reflect. This is the first title published in the association's Proceedings series.
From back cover:
How to reach audiences abroad? International and intercultural communication, aiming at bridging gaps and promoting mutual understanding between
nations and cultures, are at the heart of global broadcasting. Methods and topics of international audience research are diverse, its challenges numerous. In this book experts
