Title Economical Power and Social Influence: Challenges of media concentration to Democracy Summary Concentration processes in the media sector are a characteristic phenomenon of the modern culture industry. Diverse transformations of the last decade have upset the delicate balance between the economic, political and social powers, on the one hand, and freedom of access to the media system on the other. This article analyses these trends in the concentration processes during the last decade, weighing up the challenges for freedom of expression and democracy set by the latest technological changes and the widespread growth of major multimedia groups. Keywords Concentration processes, freedom of expression, multimedia groups, media system, democratic pluralism, technological change and the information society.
