The International Press Institute (IPI) is a partner of Media Freedom Rapid Response (MFRR), a project which tracks, monitors and responds to violations of press and media freedom, providing legal and practical support, public advocacy and information to protect journalists and media workers in the EU and Candidate States.
The MFRR deploys a systematic and comprehensive monitoring of press and media violations and documents them on the Mapping Media Freedom platform.
The threats captured on the Mapping Media Freedom platform guide the MFRR’s legal, protection and advocacy work and shape the analysis of the major trends in Europe’s media landscape.
As part of this work, the MFRR will coordinate fact-finding, advocacy and fast-response missions to source first hand documentation and information to support out work; engage with national governments, European institutions and other bodies; host public and expert events; and coordinate public campaigns to secure greater awareness and public engagement to stand in solidarity with journalists and media workers across the continent.
The MFRR brings together rights organisations, policy makers, journalists, trade unions, membership bodies and public watchdogs to advocate for greater press and media freedom protections across EU Member States and Candidate Countries.
