Press and media freedom is under attack. Not only in authoritarian states like Azerbaijan and countries in transition like Macedonia but also in countries with strong democratic constitutions like Germany and long democratic traditions like the United Kingdom.

The European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF) is founded by 25 organizations from all over Europe to stop this development. The basis for our work is the European Charter signed by 48 editors-in-chief and leading journalists.

The ECPMF will unite media, press organizations and academia to counter attacks on press and media freedom both nationally and internationally. We will establish a database of media law in Europe and of all attacks on it, we will organize working groups to support other national and international organizations advocating media freedom, we will support national media associations and individuals fighting for freedom of the press and media and we will support individual journalists who are harassed by the authorities.
