The European Commission’s latest annual strategy on EU enlargement, adopted in October last year, highlighted freedom of expression and media as one of the most important challenges enlargement countries are facing. Moreover, freedom of expression is considered an accession priority. The first Speak-up!

Two years later, it is time to take stock of the results achieved and define the way forward.
