''Fighting discrimination and promoting intercultural dialogue is a collective responsibility but it is also down to individuals. That is the message of the Council of Europe's "Speak out against discrimination" campaign. And since the media and media professionals have a major role to play in combating discrimination and encouraging intercultural dialogue, the Council of Europe has sought to involve all the media industry's players (publishers, regulators etc) and have them debate and propose solutions for promoting a culture of tolerance and mutual understanding, bearing in mind the media's contribution to informing the public and forming opinion.''
