Concerned about the increasing threats to media freedom in its 47 member-states, the Council of Europelaunched in 2015 a platform to protect journalists and journalism in partnership with leading organisations in this field.
Via the platform, the partner organisations issue alerts concerning media freedom threats and bring them to the attention of the Council of Europe institutions. It permits the Council of Europe to highlight serious concerns about media freedom and journalists’ rights, to react more effectively in response to these threats and to initiate a dialogue with the member states concerned on possible remedies and protective measures.
Since April 2015, the partners have published 436 alerts in 37 countries, including the killing of 23 journalists. The other media threats reported to the platform concern physical attacks on journalists and other media actors, intimidation and harassment, threats to the confidentiality of journalistic sources and other forms of political or judicial intimidation.

Twelve organisations contribute to the platform: Article 19, the Association of European Journalists, the Committee to Protect Journalists, the European Broadcasting Union, the European Federation of Journalists, Index on Censorship, the International Federation of Journalists, the International News Safety Institute, the International Press Institute, PEN International, Reporters Without Borders and the Rory Pech Trust.
