Declaration on Media and Democracy in Europe

SIGNIS is one of the founder members of the Coalition for Media Freedom and Integrity, formed by a group of concerned professional media organizations and civil society groups in Europe. The Coalition is inviting other organizations and NGOs working on media issues, to sign their Declaration on Media and Democracy in Europe.

The petition is a call to law makers, public authorities, media owners, media professionals’ organizations, civil society groups and all other interested parties, to act urgently to promote media pluralism. The petition also urges states to ratify and implement the UNESCO Convention on Cultural Diversity.

The petition can be accessed and signed here
