Online Political Ads

Why is Commission proposing regulation on online political ads? What are the key issues at stake and who are the key-policy makers?

We have launched a webpage so you can stay informed on this key democracy issue!

Media Freedom in Europe

Free and independent press is a cornerstone of democratic systems and holds those accountable to account. In turn, accurate and independent information allows citizens to actively scrutinise political actors, make informed political choices and exercise their right to receive reliable information, which has an important impact on the exercise of other fundamental rights.

On this webpage, we provide you with all the elements you need to understand why legislation on media freedom is important in the EU, how the legislation process will unfold and what the different positions on the matter are.
