Supporting the implementation of EU Democracy Action Plans and Human Rights and Democracy Country Strategies.

This project aimed to ensure that issues of freedom of expression, right to information and free media are incorporated in the EU Democracy Action Plans and the Human Rights and Democracy Country Strategies and are implemented as part of EU democracy support. The main thematic focus of the technical assistance project will be access to information, online media and new technologies, responses to the changing media landscape, and public service media. EU Delegations and EU Member State missions’ staff, alongside broadly defined media actors in cooperation countries, will be the two main target groups. For more information, visit the project website.


  • Media inputs were integrated into the EU Democracy Action Plans/Human Rights and Democracy Country Strategies;
  • Capacities of the media actors to promote and exercise the right to access public information are established/developed;
  • EU Delegations staff and media actors have a good knowledge and understanding of the EU Guidelines on Freedom of Expression.
