Our Narrative

2020-01-02

BRUSSELS - How Journalismfund.eu grew from an idea at a funeral table into a professional journalism organisation with international acclaim: 2 December 1997, Brussels. Up-and-coming TV journalist Pascal Decroos is on his way home from VRT, the Flemish public broadcaster, when a motorist driving against the flow of traffic crashes into his car.

How civil society and journalism can work together to strengthen democracy

BRUSSELS - If done carelessly, ties between journalism organisations and civil society can undermine the credibility of both. But there are ways in which the two parties can reinforce each other and strengthen democracy while retaining their independence. Our Money Trail project shows how.

Conference

During the post-World War II era, visionary European leaders established institutions and developed conventions that combined media and democracy to keep peace in Europe. The Council of Europe, the European Union, the OSCE (based on the Helsinki Final Act) all regard media freedom as a fundamental pillar of democracy. Today, in several countries we find that the links between free and pluralistic media and politics are being challenged.
