The European Media Freedom Act aims to safeguard and promote media pluralism and freedom of expression across the European Union, addressing issues such as media ownership concentration, editorial independence, and the safety of journalists. As the media landscape continues to evolve and face new challenges, this legislation is seen as a crucial step towards ensuring a healthy and diverse media environment that fosters democratic discourse and informed citizen participation.
Through presentations and panel discussions, the workshop will explore the various dimensions of the European Media Freedom Act, including its potential implications on the internal market, addressing the key question: how will the EU internal market benefit from the proposed legislation?
In addition, the second panel will be dedicated to the ongoing debate on the European Media Freedom Act that is currently ongoing at the European Parliament.
The workshop is open to all those interested in media pluralism and freedom of expression, including academics, journalists, media professionals, policymakers, and civil society representatives.
