Rochyadi-Reetz and Löffelholz publish comparison of German and Indonesian media systems

Mira Rochyadi-Reetz and Martin Löffelholz contributed the chapter “A pressing Tale of two Countries: Comparing the Media Systems of Indonesia and Germany” in a book on “Media and Transformation in Germany and Indonesia: Asymmetrical Comparisons and Perspectives”. The book is based on a collaborative project of German and Indonesian scholars, which was coordinated, by the Media and Communication Studies Department of the University of Erfurt-Germany and the Faculty of Communication Science, Padjadjaran University-Indonesia.

In the book chapter which they wrote, Rochyadi-Reetz and Löffelholz compare media systems of both countries, which are different in various ways, because not only the former is in Europe and the latter is in Asia, but because they have varied historical and cultural contexts. To compare the media systems of both countries, they applied the theoretical framework based on the indicators proposed by Hallin and Manchini (2004) and other indicators suggested by various scholars like press freedom, Internet freedom, cultural dimensions, and media trust.
