EU Intranet Cooperation Forum

The European Commission proposed 'TV without Frontiers' Directive to use a 'EU Intranet Cooperation Forum' to challenge programmes, which stimulate seditious hatred.

This issue has been discussed by Europe's broadcasting regulators at a meeting in Brussels today. The regulators supported the Commission's proposal to launch a new EU Intranet Cooperation Forum as an effective means to combat clear cases of incitement to hatred in broadcast and audiovisual media services whilst meticulously respecting the fundamental freedoms enshrined in the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. European Broadcasting Regulators also discussed the modernisation of the TV without Frontiers Directive and the amendments to step up the fight against incitement to hatred.
