  • to investigate, map and assess how the new regulations and practices are fueling these changes, and whether the new media system is facilitating a concentration of media ownership in Hungary;
  • to increase the transparency of media ownership in Hungary, and of the new regulations and practices that are shaping Hungary’s media landscape;
  • to systematically monitor and document changes to Hungary’s media ownership landscape;
  • to deliver policy-relevant, accessible, actionable data, information and tools that engaged multiple stakeholders across the domestic and international arenas.
