Mapping the Freedom of the Press
Mapping Media Freedom is mapping threats to the media throughout the European Union and neighboring countries. It is a joint initiative from the Index on Censorship, the European Federation of Journalists and Reporters Without Borders. The map uses clustered markers to show the locations of crowdsourced reports of threats, violations or limitations faced by journalists, newspapers or other media.
The map sidebar provides links to read more about the reports shown in the current map view. This list updates automatically as you pan and zoom the map. If you click on an individual map marker or one of these headlines in the map sidebar you can read the full submitted report.
You can filter the reports shown on the map by location, date range or category. The categories include different types of censorship and limits to press freedom. They also include the option to filter by sex, type of journalist and the source of the threat to media freedom.
