“Public life / private life: what are the boundaries for European journalists?”

by Collectif

It is true that the line between private and public life has varied over time, according to social, political and cultural contexts, today it is increasingly thin and, at times, porous.
Where are the boundaries in the public arena? What is the situation for our neighbours and throughout Europe?
When can national media cross this figurative limit?
How is this separation viewed by European countries? How does the culture and history of a population affect the acceptance or not of intrusion into the private life of a public figure?
This booklet takes stock and assesses the way the media deals with the public/private issue, in Italy, France, Sweden, Slovenia and United-Kingdom.
