Call for input on report “Press- and Media Freedom in the World”

Before the summer of 2013 the European Parliament will vote on a resolution regarding press- and media freedom in the world. It is essential for the EU to take its responsibility in defending and promoting press- and media freedom in the most effective and efficient way.

I am honored to have been asked to lead the European Parliament´s efforts in this field. In order to include as many stakeholders and experts in the drafting of a relevant report I am asking for your input. What are the key challenges journalists and media face? How can the EU be most effective? I would like to invite you to submit your suggestions to by February 1st.

I will be working on a discussion paper as well as on a first draft text to be presented in the European Parliament mid February.

Thanks in advance, I believe together we can make better legislation!
