BUCHAREST - The South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) published a 'Safety Net Manual - Guidelines for Journalists in Extraordinary or Emergency Situations'.

The manual is published within the EU-funded project ‘Safety Net for European Journalists‘, with which the European transnational partnership coordinated by Italian think tank Osservatorio Balcani e Caucaso has dedicated the year 2014 to studying the state of press freedom in Italy, South East Europe and Turkey.

Among the many actions, the partners

  • fostered knowledge-sharing within a very fragmented media freedom community,
  • monitored, documented and reported on violations of press freedom in 11 European countries,
  • crowdsourced and mapped hundreds of media freedom violations across Europe online,
  • offered concrete support to threatened reporters and media professionals, and
  • raised public awareness about a problem that is shared from east to west.

As of February 19th, the manual is also available in Romanian and Italian.
