Safeguarding freedom - securing justice

Die Balance zu finden zwischen der Freiheit im Netz und dem Schutz essentieller Rechtsgüter, ist eine Herausforderung, die wir nur gemeinsam angehen können. Auch die medienpolitische Ausrichtung Europas wird sie zukünftig maßgeblich bestimmen. Wir möchten daher zu diesem Thema mit Ihnen ins Gespräch kommen und laden Sie hiermit herzlich zu unserer Veranstaltung „Safeguarding freedom – securing justice“ ein.

Die Veranstaltung wird gemeinsam mit der Landesanstalt für Medien NRW und dem Institut für Europäisches Medienrecht e.V. (EMR) sowie mit freundlicher Unterstützung der Vertretung des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen bei der Europäischen Union ausgerichtet.

Striking a balance between online freedom and the protection of crucial legal interests is a challenge, which we can only approach together. In addition, this will define the direction of Europe's media policies in the future. We would like to address this issue at our event “Safeguarding freedom – securing justice” and warmly invite you to join in on our conversation.

The event takes place in cooperation with the Media Authority of North-Rhine Westphalia and the Institute of European Media Law (EMR) as well as with friendly support of the Representation of the State of North-Rhine Westphalia to the European Union.
