Freedom of expression and freedom and pluralism of the media are principles that are enshrined in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union. The protection and promotion of pluralism and of freedom of the media are crucial to guarantee a democratic environment for all EU citizens, and for the legitimacy of the Union as a whole.

The roundtable will discuss the tools and methodologies that are currently tested and used to measure media pluralism  with a specific focus on the Media Pluralism Monitor carried out by the Centre for Media Pluralism and Media Freedom at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (EUI).
