Iva Nenadić: European Media Freedom Act – Achievements and Challenges Ahead

For a decade, the Media Pluralism Monitor has been regularly implemented in all EU member states and candidate countries to map and monitor the evolution of risks to media freedom and pluralism across the dimensions of fundamental rights and protections, market conditions, political independence, and social inclusiveness.

The Monitor, which informs the media pluralism section of the European Commission’s Rule of Law reports, indicates that many conditions for media and journalism have worsened over time across Europe. It is particularly problematic when ruling politicians, designated to provide and protect an enabling environment for journalism, create conditions that make work more difficult or even dangerous for journalists.

This has led to the European Media Freedom Act (EMFA), a groundbreaking achievement considering that the EU traditionally has had no explicit competencies in this policy area. Media policies have traditionally been a matter of national policy. This lecture outlines the key elements of EMFA and discusses some challenges to its equal implementation across all EU countries.
