How can Europe ensure better respect of diversity and inclusion in its cinema, television and VOD industries?

At national level, legislators and regulators have provided a diversity of tools and mechanisms to promote equality and fight discrimination, for example, by imposing obligations on broadcasters, particularly public service broadcasters. Film funds make public funding conditional on the fulfilment of equality and diversity criteria. And beyond state intervention, the European audiovisual industry has also stepped in, introducing new policies aimed at increasing diversity and promoting inclusion in the sector.

This publication aims at presenting the variety of measures in a non-comprehensive way - in a way which not only illustrates all the good work that has been done in recent years, but which also highlights shortcomings and challenges for the future.
