Have Your Say: EU consultation on safeguarding media freedom in the EU

A consultation has been launched to collect views and insights on Safeguarding Media Freedom in the EU. Responses are being sought from citizens, relevant Member States’ authorities and bodies, academics, media actors (both private and public service media) and umbrella organisations representing any of the interested stakeholders. The consultation opened on the 10th January and will run until 21 March 2022.

The consultation aims to gather:
1) stakeholders’ views on the current and emerging problems related to media freedom and pluralism, with a
specific focus on obstacles/issues affecting the operation of the media in the EU internal market;
2) evidence and concrete data underpinning the problems identified, and
3) stakeholders’ views on the potential policy approach, options and impacts.
