European Alternatives et Alliance Internationale de Journalistes have been working since 2010 towards the establishment of a European Initiative for Media Pluralism, a coalition promoting the idea that European institutions should safeguard the right to free, independent and pluralistic information.

The European Initiative for Media Pluralism, supported by ALDA, brings together nearly one hundred organisations, media, and professional bodies from throughout the continent running a European Citizens Initiative, a tool of transnational participatory democracy allowing at least one million citizens in at least 7 EU member states to present directly to the European Commission a legislative proposal.

The Initiative demands to the European Commission to draft a Directive on media pluralism containing: a) effective legislation to avoid concentration of ownership in the media and advertisement sectors; b) guaranteed independence of supervisory bodies from political power; c) definition of conflict of interests to avoid media moguls occupying high political office; d) monitoring systems to regularly check the health and independence of the media in member states.

Le European Initiative for Media Pluralism has received broad support from the cultural, academic, and political world. But most important of all, it aims to mobilise citizens from throughout Europe to stand up and demand that the European institutions show their commitment to fundamental rights and civil liberties, even when member states increasingly fail to do so.
