Enpa's 10 actions points

Freedom of expression is at the heart of European democracy and at the core of the newspaper and news media sector. Publishers, editors and journalists defend this freedom in sometimes difficult and dangerous circumstances across Europe and around the world. Independent news reporting acts as a vital safeguard of democratic society, holding to account those in positions of power. In the course of the next five years, European legislators will have the opportunity to take many decisions which could help to ensure a vibrant and sustainable newspaper and news media sector to the benefit of Europe’s citizens. Policy issues on the EU agenda during this mandate will have a profound effect on the ability of the press to operate and thrive in Europe. In this publication, ENPA outlines some of the priority issues affecting the newspaper and news media sector.
