This report provides the proceedings of an expert seminar, held during the preparatory meeting of the Conference on Security and Co-operation in Europe (CSCE) summit, which was designed to contribute to the new media orientation of the CSCE. The proceedings notes that the main media issue in the 1990s is no longer to legitimize freedom over censorship but to guarantee that the mass media will actually serve the citizen's right to communicate as prescribed by Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Papers in the proceedings are: (1) "The Human Right to Communicate in a Civil Society" (Cees Hamelink); (2) "From Governmental Regulation to Market Regulation: Press Law and the Meaning of Article 10 of the European Human Rights Convention" (Dirk Vorhoof); (3) "Old Problems in a New Environment: Broadcasting Legislation in Eastern Europe and the Republics of the Former Soviet Union" (Wolfgang Kleinwachter); (4) "New Freedoms--Old Problems? The Role of Journalists in Times of Change" (Colin Sparks); (5) "Subject, Object or Equal Participant? In Search of a Realistic Goal of Communication Democratization in Poland" (Karol Jakubowicz); (6) "Russia: Is Law on the Press Still Pressed by 'Sandwich Law'?" (Yassen Zassoursky); (7) "From Perestroika and Glasnost to Independent Media? A Russian Perspective" (Yuri Baturin and Yegor Kouznetsov); (8) "The Role of Audience in the Present-Day Media Situation: The Case of Estonia" (Halliki Harro); (9) "One Step Forward and Two Steps Back? The Romanian Broadcasting Law" (Cristian Constantinescu); (10) "The Council of Europe and the CSCE Process in the Area of Information Policy" (Lawrence Early); (11) "The Development of Media Cooperation between European Countries" (George Wedell); and (12) "Framework, Structures and Mechanisms" (Bernard Blin). Excerpts from the Helsinki CSCE document, other key CSCE documents, documentation of the seminar, and a summary report of the Round Table on Media Law in Europe are attached. (RS)
