2014 CJEU decision in the Dano case. In the summer of 2010, French authorities initiated a plan instated by the then president, Nicolas Sarkozy, in a speech in Grenoble (La Croix, 2010 ). The speech was connected to a general crackdown on crime and irregular migration, but it shifted its attention to Romani EU citizens. In August 2010 French authorities expelled a thousand Romani individuals who were Romanian and Bulgarian citizens (BBC, 2010 ) after dismantling their informal settlements, and between

Poulantzas, Laclau, Hall

Hall notably expanded this analysis to cast the institution of the BBC as ‘an instrument of the national culture’ at the very moment critical media scholars began to draw on Habermas's public sphere thesis to defend its autonomy. For Hall, however, its primary significance was that it ‘served, at one and the same time, to maintain the cultural standards and values of the dominant class-cultures by organizing them into a single “voice”, while incorporating the other class and regional voices into its organic and corporate framework’. 78

affectionately (the diminutive as pet name), but also in some way as ‘reduced’ (the author’s alter ego, but with less substance).39 A BBC programme on Yerofeev recorded by Pawel Pawlikowski40 shortly before Yerofeev died introduces some of the originals for the characters in the novel, including one drunk who recalls a form of literary duelling with Yerofeev and others, in which the participants challenged each other as to who could best recite literature from memory. In the programme Yerofeev has to use a voice box in order to speak, following surgery for throat cancer. The

Nicholas Garnham's landmark defence of the UK regulatory system directly tied the British understanding of public service, centred on but not confined to the BBC, to the promotion of Habermas's work on the public sphere. Structural Transformation had only briefly mentioned this institutional form, but Habermas later endorsed the UK practice of what he termed ‘regulated pluralism’ as his preferred media system configuration. The ground was so laid for the widespread adoption of the public sphere thesis in media and communications studies including critical political

The many autonomies of private law

the arts and in culture, but also in the media and even in the universities, heated controversies about the decline of professional quality have emerged that put the blame on market mechanisms. 50 Witness the controversy regarding the BBC and BSkyB, where one and the same person, now Media Professor at Oxford, has forcefully advocated both extreme positions! Have you recently listened to Radio 3 and

crucial that she preserve her sovereignty, so that she could continue her traditions and eventually return to greatness. 16 These considerations underlie de Gaulle’s famous appeal on the BBC following the news that France had officially requested an armistice with Germany on 18 June 1940. In it, he claimed to be the personification of the French resistance and called on the remaining French forces to rally to him. In saying the words ‘ nous sommes la France ’ the General meant it literally: ‘in his view Free France was France, and he was the head of a sovereign

You know, ultimately we should judge any system, shouldn’t we, by whether or not in the end it maximizes human welfare? (Matthew Taylor, “The Fall of the Berlin Wall,” The Moral Maze , BBC Radio 4 6th November 2019) Introduction We have seen in previous chapters, then, why it is that law will take on a teleocratic orientation, driven by the directing idea of making the powerful responsible for the well-being of the powerless, and hence being construed as declaratory of purposes and specifying the methods by which they are to be achieved. We

education, to disabled access at Premier League football stadiums, to equal pay for men and women in the BBC, to anti-semitism in the Labour Party – and everything in between. 73 The phenomena of pluralisation and autonomisation are, of course, self-reinforcing and concatenating. Legislation requiring businesses to report on the impact on human rights of their operations, in turn, causes those businesses to require suppliers to perform similar rituals of audit, and so on down the supply chain. This transforms not just the largest firm into a human rights regulator
