 Recombining Governance Modes: The Media Sector in Cologne

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the media sector in Cologne and its neighbouring municipalities. It argues that the growth of the media industry in Cologne is due to the large number of collective competition goods in the area. However, this availability is a secondary consequence of a set of political decisions, with the Cologne-based broadcaster Westdeutscher Rundfunk as the starting point for the cluster.
