Lunch Time Meeting

Rule of Law and Democracy in the Digital Society

Challenges and Opportunities for Europe


The digital revolution has brought about widespread and rapid transformations in the media landscape, disrupting established business models and eroding public trust in traditional media actors.

The impact of current developments, however, goes well-beyond the media sector, raising challenging questions regarding fundamental freedoms and the Rule of Law in democratic societies.  Ensuring data protection and online privacy, tackling illegal hate speech and countering the spread of disinformation on social networks are just some of the priorities currently on the agenda of EU institutions.

This lunchtime meeting with Commissioner Jourová aims to discuss key challenges and possible solutions to ensure a pluralistic media environment in Europe based on the Rule of Law.

Registration and sandwich lunch from 12.30 – Meeting from 13.15 to 14.30
