Communication Policies in Ireland.
Communication policies emanate from political ideologies, the social and economic conditions of a country, and the values on which they are based, and strive to relate these to the real needs for and the prospective opportunities in communication. In this study, one of a series undertaken as part of a UNESCO program, an attempt was made to follow a structural pattern and method of approach agreed on between national institutions to facilitate comparison among countries. The contents of the booklet focus on: the idea of communication policy, the system of mass communication within the socioeconomic and cultural structures of the Republic of Ireland, public policy, policies of the mass media, communication professions, social participation, and communication trends in the country. Appendixes provide material on the socioeconomic and cultural background of the Republic of Ireland and on the mass media in this Republic. (JM)
