European Initiative for Media Pluralism
Commission registration number: ECI(2013)000007
Date of registration: 19/08/2013
Protecting media pluralism through partial harmonisation of national rules on media ownership and transparency, conflicts of interest with political office and independence of media supervisory bodies.
We demand amendments to the Audiovisual Media Services Directive (or the endorsement of a new Directive) aiming at introducing harmonised rules with regard to the protection of media pluralism as necessary step towards the correct functioning of the internal market. Such legislation, in accordance with the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, will also meet the public interest objective of maintaining a pluralist democratic debate through free exchange of ideas and information in the European Union
Provisions of the Treaties considered relevant by the organisers:
Articles 22, 26, 49, 50, 55 and 114 of the TFUE; Article 11 of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights
