Report of the Media Violence Commission
In December 2011, the ISRA appointed a special commission to prepare a report on media violence. This commission was "charged with the task of producing a public statement on the known effects of exposure to media violence, based on the current state of scientific knowledge. If the Commission finds sufficient evidence of harmful effects, then the Commission's public statement may include public policy recommendations."

The full text document of this report is available currently in English, Greek, Romanian and German, and may be translated into additional languages in the near future.
