Media freedom is under threat worldwide. Journalists are threatened, jailed and even killed simply for doing their job.
Index on Censorship documents threats to media freedom in Europe via a unique monitoring project and campaigns against laws that stifle journalists’ work. We also publish an award-winning magazine featuring work by and about censored journalists. Learn more.
Index responds to Leveson Royal Charter
"Two-thirds block on any changes to the royal charter could be abused in the future...today’s emerging consensus shows that the parties can come together in both houses to agree on press regulation."
Index on Censorship’s response to the Leveson report
The Leveson Report will become a benchmark for press regulation in modern democracies. Index has urged a serious, considered debate about Lord Justice Leveson’s recommendations rather than their full adoption. The free speech organisation opposes the statutory underpinning of press regulation as proposed by Lord Justice Leveson.
