The European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF) works within a Europe-wide network of media freedom organisations, including journalists’ trade unions, academic centres of excellence, campaigning organisations, human rights monitoring bodies and individual activists. Some of these relationships are formalised into consortia. For example, a group of organisations may join the ECPMF to bid for funding for a specific project. Others are ad hoc groupings that spring up in response to a particular threat – like the advocacy groups on Turkey and Slovakia. the aim is always to ensure that ECPMF’s actions and advocacy enhance those of other key players in the media freedom community and help to amplify the voices demanding an end to impunity for crimes against journalists and to the abuse of unfair laws and political interference in the media.
