As cases of press a freedom violations are on the rise in EU member states as well as in candidate countries, the conference aimed at examining the ways in which a sound rule of law system can contribute to the advancement of media freedom in the European space, by bringing together journalists, scholars, legal experts, activists and representatives of civil society. 

The event took place at the headquarters of the Association of Foreign Press in Italy in Rome and was organised in collaboration with the Heinrich Böll Stiftung Paris, France - Italy and with the support of Federazione Nazionale Stampa Italia - FNSI and Consiglio Nazionale Ordine dei Giornalisti - Cnog.
