In the middle of the most pronounced economic crisis since its inception, many of the communication policies initiated by the
European Union in recent decades must be evaluated and redefined considering the future of the Union. The challenge to
define Europe and create a common identity that respects the diversity of cultures within the Union has been attempted through various media policies. We explore the recent evolution of European radio policies, considering a range of projects from
the global to network levels (e.g. Radio E, Euranet and Euranet Plus) that are fundamental to our understanding of the use of media in the development of a European identity that respects the diversity of cultures within the Union.
