A Manifesto for Media and Democracy in Europe (2007)

We, the undersigned, a coalition of concerned European media NGOs, professional organisations and civil society groups, declare that at a time of increasing uncertainty among Europeans about the future, there has never been a more important time for the promotion of informed, professional and pluralist media.

We strongly believe that in order to reinforce the values of European democracy, to meet the aspirations of the public and to confront a widespread crisis of confidence, which has led to a resurgence of intolerance and political extremism, it is urgently necessary to adopt practical confidence-building measures that will improve the flow of quality information between and within communities, and promote professional solidarity.
