Jan Loisen

Prof. Dr. Jan Loisen
Senior Researcher

Jan Loisen works in the field of international and European media policy. His research expertise builds on his PhD, which focused on the development of an institutionalist and political economic framework to analyze the World Trade Organization's impact on audiovisual policy. Drawing from political economy, new institutionalism and international relations theories, he is concerned with the development of audiovisual policy in organizations where cultural concerns and trade interests meet. He has published widely in the field of media and cultural policy as negotiated in the World Trade Organization, within Unesco’s Cultural Diversity Convention, in the European Union, and in bilateral trade agreements.

Jan studied communication sciences at the VUB. After his Master’s degree (2001), he worked as a teaching assistant at the VUB's communication sciences department. In line with his PhD (VUB, 2009), he conducted policy-supporting research at the Flemish Centre for International Policy on 'Cultural Diversity and Subsidiarity'. In this research project, opportunities, barriers and bottlenecks were investigated to develop a culturally diverse and economically sustainable Flemish media policy within an international multilevel governance policy context. He was also involved in preparing a report on ‘Implementing the UNESCO Convention of 2005 in the European Union’, commissioned by the European Parliament's Committee on Culture and Education. In 2011, Jan was appointed as assistant professor in communication studies. Since 2013 he is assistant professor, teaching ‘Introduction to Media Studies’, ‘Communication and Media Theories: Capita Selecta’, and ‘Media, Culture and Globalization Theories. In addition, he is responsible for the traineeship program of the Master ‘New Media and Society in Europe’ and the exchange program of the VUB department of communication studies.
