This chapter concentrates on three landmark conventions on media and information technology: The Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data (‘Convention on Data Protection’, CDP), the European Convention on Transfrontier Television (CTT), and the Convention on Cybercrime (CCC). Moreover, recent activities with regard to internet governance are also considered. Other conventions and activities only plays a marginal role in this chapter. The final sections take a cross-sectional approach with regard to the abovementioned topics. These focus on institutional aspects; on evaluating the impact of Council of Europe (CoE) activities with regard to data protection, transfrontier television, and cybercrime; and on an assessment of the prospects of future CoE action with regard to the media and the information society.
