July 2020: Media Freedom and the Pandemic
In the summer of 2020, Dr. Stoyan Panov (University of Freiburg) and Dr. Rumena Filipova (Center for the Study of Democracy) joined us for a joint talk exploring the effect that the pandemic state of emergency has had across the European continent on transparency and media freedom. Dr. Panov introduced a few ideas about the EU legal framework in this regard. Dr. Filipova presented her ongoing research into press freedom in Eastern Europe.
