🗣 Patrick Penninckx, Head of the Information Society Department, informed the participants of the international conference "A Choice for Democracy" organised in Brussels on Council of Europe’s long-standing cooperation with the public media. He further promoted the latest standards on media freedom and freedom of expression relevant to public service media.

He also spoke in support of the Brussels Declaration for the protection and safety of journalists worldwide launched by PBI: “The Council of Europe, just like PBI has at the centre of attention the challenges to media and democracy of our digital era. Our common goal and ultimate aim is for the citizens to be informed in a free and professional manner, with accurate, pluralistic, balanced and quality information, in the full respect of the freedom of expression. The Brussels declaration clearly reflects this by stressing the urgent need of enforcing the protection of journalists’ safety, recognising the role and promoting an independent and pluralistic media - including the community media, combating disinformation and hate speech, raising awareness with regards to the importance of media and information literacy in enabling an informed and diverse public debate for a tolerant and inclusive society. The Council of Europe has always shown an unwavering commitment to all these components of the driving motor in a democratic society where the freedom of expression right is fully exercised. Thus, we congratulate PBI for speaking with a strong voice through the Brussels declaration and of course we stand up in its support.”

BREAKING NEWS
The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided to award the Nobel Peace Prize for 2021 to Maria Ressa and Dmitry Muratov for their efforts to safeguard freedom of expression, which is a precondition for democracy and lasting peace. Ms Ressa and Mr Muratov are receiving the peace prize for their courageous fight for freedom of expression in the Philippines and Russia. At the same time, they are representatives of all journalists who stand up for this ideal in a world in which democracy and freedom of the press face increasingly adverse conditions.

Maria Ressa uses freedom of expression to expose abuse of power, use of violence and growing authoritarianism in her native country, the Philippines. In 2012, she co-founded Rappler, a digital media company for investigative journalism, which she still heads. As a journalist and the Rappler’s CEO, Ressa has shown herself to be a fearless defender of freedom of expression. Rappler has focused critical attention on the Duterte regime’s controversial, murderous anti-drug campaign. The number of deaths is so high that the campaign resembles a war waged against the country’s own population. Ms Ressa and Rappler have also documented how social media is being used to spread fake news, harass opponents and manipulate public discourse.

Dmitry Andreyevich Muratov has for decades defended freedom of speech in Russia under increasingly challenging conditions. In 1993, he was one of the founders of the independent newspaper Novaja Gazeta. Since 1995 he has been the newspaper’s editor-in-chief for a total of 24 years. Novaja Gazeta is the most independent newspaper in Russia today, with a fundamentally critical attitude towards power. The newspaper’s fact-based journalism and professional integrity have made it an important source of information on censurable aspects of Russian society rarely mentioned by other media. Since its start-up in 1993, Novaja Gazeta has published critical articles on subjects ranging from corruption, police violence, unlawful arrests, electoral fraud and ”troll factories” to the use of Russian military forces both within and outside Russia.

Novaja Gazeta’s opponents have responded with harassment, threats, violence and murder. Since the newspaper’s start, six of its journalists have been killed, including Anna Politkovskaja who wrote revealing articles on the war in Chechnya. Despite the killings and threats, editor-in-chief Muratov has refused to abandon the newspaper’s independent policy. He has consistently defended the right of journalists to write anything they want about whatever they want, as long as they comply with the professional and ethical standards of journalism.

Free, independent and fact-based journalism serves to protect against abuse of power, lies and war propaganda. The Norwegian Nobel Committee is convinced that freedom of expression and freedom of information help to ensure an informed public. These rights are crucial prerequisites for democracy and protect against war and conflict. The award of the Nobel Peace Prize to Maria Ressa and Dmitry Muratov is intended to underscore the importance of protecting and defending these fundamental rights.

Without freedom of expression and freedom of the press, it will be difficult to successfully promote fraternity between nations, disarmament and a better world order to succeed in our time. This year’s award of the Nobel Peace Prize is therefore firmly anchored in the provisions of Alfred Nobel’s will.

15 years ago #AnnaPolitkovskaya was killed for reporting on #HumanRights violations. Russian authorities' failure to identify the masterminds illustrate the dangers of impunity for crimes against journalists. Achieving justice and ensuring journalists' safety is crucial to honour her memory.

Twitter trials warnings about ‘intense’ conversations

"Twitter users poised to dive into a heated online debate will be warned they are about to enter an “intense” conversation, under a safety trial.

The social media platform is testing a feature that drops a notice under a potentially contentious exchange, stating: “Heads up. Conversations like this can be intense.” Another prompt, which appears to be aimed at people making a reply, goes to greater lengths to calm down users and urges the tweeter to “look out for each other”, “remember the human” and note that “diverse perspectives have value”."
