Steering Committee on Media and Information Society
(CDMSI)

On 1 January 2012, the Steering Committee on Media and new Communication Services (CDMC) was replaced by the Steering Committee on Media and Information Society (CDMSI).
This change should enable the Council of Europe to keep pace with the changes occurring in the media and the information society. It will thus embrace the forward looking dimension of the new notion of media, adopted by the Committee of Ministers, in its standard setting work, still pursuing the multi-stakeholder approach adopted by the CDMC.
