Supporting Media: A Cornerstone of Freedom

The European Neighbourhood Info Centre (ENPI) has published a press pack on the subject of the media entitled “supporting media: a cornerstone of freedom”. Released in September 2014, the publication is an overview of instruments used by the European Union to promote democratic freedoms in the European Neighbourhood by supporting free and independent media. The pack includes information on media freedom, the regional communication programme and other support offered by the EU in the region.

“Free, diverse and independent media constitutes one of the cornerstones of a democratic society by facilitating the free flow of information and ideas, and by ensuring transparency and accountability.” said EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Catherine Ashton

The European Neighbourhood Info Centre is a project funded by the European Union.  It has published various reports on the subject of media in the EU neighbourhood including most recently a journalist’s handbook.
