Set of conclusions adopted by the Council of the European Union on 21 June 2022, focusing on the protection and safety of journalists and other media professionals.
The conclusions were adopted against a backdrop of increasing threats to journalists, which are seen as impeding freedom of expression and freedom to inform.
The Council calls on the European Commission to strengthen funding for independent and investigative journalism and take into account online safety and freedom of speech for journalists and other media professionals in all relevant initiatives following from the EU’s digital strategy. It recognises that many journalists and other media professionals are not able to work freely and independently everywhere as they should be.
The conclusions were adopted by the Council of the European Union on 21 June 2022.
