Dear All,
just to add to what said by Gabi and Ashish that

* Price-Davies, Eryl & Tacchi, Jo (2001) Community Radio in a Global 
Context: A Comparative Analysis in Six Countries. Sheffield: Community 
is available online at 

*Community Media in Europe. The legal and economic framework of the 
third audiovisual sector in UK, Netherlands, Switzerland, Niedersachsen 
(Germany) and Ireland
by Helmut Peissl & Otto Tremetzberger
an English summary (12 pages) is available at 

A revised version of this piece will be published on a special issue on 
community media of Elsevier's 'Telematics and Informatics', to be 
published in electronic version shortly (details to be circulated closer 
to time) edited by Nico Carpentier and me and including a range of 
articles on European Community Radio policy and practice written by both 
academics and practitioners, as well alternative media theory and practice.

Link to abstract of Peissl&Tremetzberger:
Other articles avilalable in the 'Articles in press' section

* Legislation on community radio broadcasting: comparative study of the 
legislation of 13 countries (2003). Including profiles of
Argentina; Australia; Canada; Colombia; El Salvador; Ghana; India; 
Lebanon; Philippines; Poland; Spain; South Africa and Uruguay
is available at http://unesdoc.unesco.org/ulis/cgi-bin/ulis.pl?catno=130970

Please also note that the study 'The State of Community Media in Europe' 
for some reason is not anymore available at the given URL.
You can retrieve from Community Media Forum Europe's site at 

I would like to add my best wishes to OM8 delegates in Colombia too :) 
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to attend a conference until now but 
hope to do so very soon....keep us posted!
