Media ownership and concentration in Switzerland

Abstract

The Swiss media landscape reflects Switzerland's society. Although there are some debates over concentration, media concentration is not considered by many stakeholders to be a major issue in Switzerland:the Federal Council in 2010 rejected further regulation, saying that the sector was sufficiently self-regulated. Moreover, concentration is correlated with the market size: as Switzerland is a small country, high concentration indices should be expected. This article observes that, in general, concentration is relatively low, especially if we take into account this important specificity.
