Coding Public Value: Public service media and software for the common good

The project investigates the possibility of exercising media policy through the development of software. The focus is on developing a software for public media platforms that not only serves business models but also considers the public interest and takes into account media regulations.

Project description

Coding Public Value (CPV) focuses on the development and evaluation of methods for responsible software engineering serving the common good along with corresponding institutional, political and organisational frameworks for public-service media platforms. Two central questions come to the fore: How can legal, political and user-oriented requirements of public media be translated into requirements, methods and quality assessment practices for the engineering of software? Which institutional, political, and organizational requirements have to be implemented in order to operate these media platforms on the foundation of such public service-oriented software engineering? To answer these questions, CPV combines science and technology studies, media and communication research, legal studies and empirical software engineering in an interdisciplinary collaboration.
