Assistance and co-operation are instrumental in promoting the implementation of the Council of Europe standards in the fields of freedom of expression and information and media freedom, both online and offline.
Our aim is to foster an enabling environment for freedom of expression in the Council of Europe Member States and more recently in the Southern Mediterranean Region taking into account the challenges of a changing media environment. We do this by providing human rights expertise and assistance to media and new-media actors, as well as guidance to governments and regulatory authorities in target countries.
In 2014-2015, more than 280 events were organised and 6000 people trained by the Council of Europe with an overall budget of around 7 million euros.
