Communication Policies in Hungary.
Szecsko, Tamas; Fodor, Gabor
This book is one of a series of studies--undertaken as part of the program adopted by the General Conference of UNESCO--related to the analysis of communication policies as they exist at the public, institutional, and professional levels in selected countries. Discussed in this book about Hungary's communication policies are such topics as mass communication and planning; historical development of mass communication systems; social structure and communication structure; national communication policies; policies of the mass media; relations between mass communication and its public; relations between mass communication and information sources; interrelation of mass media; communication policies and the professional organizations; systems of professional training; and ethics and traditions. It is concluded that mass communication is taking a more central place in Hungarian society because of the ongoing process of democratization, the increasing political activity of citizens, the differentiation of their cultural demands, the rising standard of living, and the integration of certain elements of the scientific-technical revolution in everyday life.
