Strasbourg , 

Following the Committee of Ministers Thematic Debate (12 December 2013) on « Safety of journalists – further steps for the better implementation of Human Rights standards », the Secretary General of the Council of Europe made several operational proposals in order to ensure an enabling and safe environment for journalists. The “Round Table on Safety of Journalists – From Commitment to Action” promoted dialogue between international institutions and media freedom organisations to identify ways of better addressing severe human rights violations against journalists. One of its results was to lay the ground for warning mechanisms and a rapid response capacity, through the development of an Internet platform.
