The concentration of media ownership is affecting more and more European countries, and therefore all European media consumers. Join the conference to discuss how economic agendas and conflicts of interest undermine the independence of the information we consume every day.
ECPMF’s NEWSOCRACY event in Prague focuses on new forms and models of media ownership, and the implications of media ownership concentration for local and regional journalism. Through case studies, debates and expert sessions ECPMF aims to come up with constructive approaches to promote and strengthen media plurality.
The European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF) is a non-profit European Cooperative Society, based in Leipzig, Germany.

The ECPMF and its partners preserve and defend media freedom by monitoring the state of free media in Europe, providing news and tools on media freedom issues, initiating activities and providing practical support to journalists at risk.
