EU Advocacy - 2024 Priorities

As we step into 2024, the EU advocacy spotlight turns to the decisive European elections, and the implementation of key regulations: the DSA, the EMFA, and the AI Act.

2024 is a pivotal year marked by the European elections: the landscape of media and digital communications in the EU is on the brink of transformative change. With the implementation of landmark regulations—the Digital Services Act (DSA), the European Media Freedom Act (EMFA), and the AI Act— the EU Media Advocacy Group's focus is sharpened on safeguarding media freedom, ensuring transparent digital services, and establishing ethical AI use standards. These regulations are not just legislative texts; they are the blueprints for a resilient, fair, and innovative digital future. In the next crucial years, we will keep advocating for policies that strengthen media integrity, promote digital transparency, and protect the public interest in the ever-evolving digital domain.

Together, these texts now cover a broad range of advocacy opportunities.

Mapping exactly what each text seeks to achieve and how the Commission is [on paper] seeking to marry these initiatives requires a few mental gymnastics.

Which is why GFMD has launched this resource center to map out all the areas of concern.
