Media and civil soci­ety organ­i­sa­tions from through­out Europe call a con­fer­ence on 26 April to launch the Euro­pean Citizen’s Ini­tia­tive (ECI). They demand­ an EU direc­tive on media plu­ral­ism for the improve­ment of anti-concentration reg­u­la­tion at EU level for the media and pub­lic­ity sec­tors. Part of the proposed directive should be also an inde­pen­dent mon­i­tor­ing of media threats in the Mem­ber states.
The con­fer­ence will see the atten­dance of all national coor­di­na­tors of the ECI, and will be the occa­sion to dis­cuss with the insti­tu­tions and attend­ing MEPs forms of col­lab­o­ra­tion for the devel­op­mento of this impor­tant ECI.
