Building on a previous Wiki GLAM initiative, Wiki4MediaFreedom aims at boosting the availability of accurate knowledge on media freedom and pluralism in Europe on Wikipedia, resulting in open-access, freely reusable quality contents for the wider public in multiple languages.

Wiki4MediaFreedom editorial effort has focussed on media landscapes and media freedom-related issues in the Visegrád countries and the 3 Baltic States, as well as in South-east Europe, the Eastern Partnership countries and Turkey. Four key aspects have received particular attention: transparency of media ownership; media concentration; access to public information; censorship and self-censorship, with a set of country entries developed for each of them.

People who are willing to contribute, learn and help disseminate in languages other than English relevant information on these topics are very welcome to join!
