Declaration adopted by the Committee of Ministers on the financial sustainability of quality journalism in the digital age

In a Declaration adopted recently, the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers encourages states to put in place a regulatory and policy framework to facilitate the operation of quality journalism, while not constraining media outlets’ editorial and operational independence. Recommended measures include a beneficial tax regime, financial support schemes and the possibility of media outlets to operate as not-for-profit organisations and receive donations from philanthropic programmes.
