European Commission supports pilot projects on media freedom

Article
European Commission support for journalists in the area of media freedom and pluralism comes into the spotlight on World Press Freedom Day, Saturday 3rd May. Four special projects launched earlier this year are receiving around €800,000, thanks to a budget earmarked by the European Parliament. They play a critical role in protecting both the right to free expression as guaranteed by the EU's Charter of Fundamental Rights and the media's instrumental role in safeguarding democracy.
