EFJ Urges European Institutions to Address Media Crisis and Its Impact on Democracy

The EFJ called for the launch of a new debate at European level on the future of media involving all stakeholders in civil society, within media, European authorities and politicians.


Last week, the EFJ sent letters to all leaders of the political parties of the European Parliament and today to the European Commission's President José Manuel Barroso to urge for a debate of this critical and historical challenge to confront the future role of media in contributing to democracy, pluralism and public engagement in the political life of Europe prior to the upcoming elections and a new Commission.
