The EBU contributes to the European Commission’s 2023 annual Rule of Law Report

In the EBU's response to the European Commission's annual Rule of Law Report consultation, we note that it is crucial that all relevant stakeholders be involved in the process of developing the country-specific recommendations. We continue to witness an alarming deterioration of the freedom of expression and information with increasing violence against journalists.

The EBU reiterates that the effective implementation by EU Member States of the 2016 Council of Europe Recommendation on the protection of journalism and safety of journalists and other media actors would further strengthen media freedom in Europe. We support robust EU action to protect and promote the rule of law, including genuine commitments to act against rule of law infringements
