Contribution to the Council of Europe’s consultation on countering strategic lawsuits against public participation (SLAPPs)

NME news , September 4, 2023

News Media Europe has been proactive on the issue of SLAPPs, as a member of the European Commission’s expert group and as a stakeholder directly involved in the EU legislative debate. We think the Council of Europe’s Recommendation is timely and we wish to contribute the best we can at European level. 

News Media Europe put high hopes on the initiative of the Council of Europe for an ambitious set of guidelines. We hope the Recommendation will carry important political weight that will inspire governments in the work they conduct at national and European levels.
