The Media Pluralism Monitor is an instrument developed at the request of the European Commission and European Parliament to regularly monitor the health of Europe’s media, flagging potential threats to pluralism in member states.

The Monitor is currently undergoing a pilot implementation led by the European University Institute in Florence.

European Media Initiative has been a strong advocate for the Monitor since its inception in 2010, following every step through its current implementation.

We are now working to ensure the EU takes up this instrument as a structural component of its assessment of compliance of EU member states with the fundamental values of the Union.
