Working with partners, the MFRR will lead a range of fact-finding, fast response and advocacy missions across EU member states and candidate countries. During the COVID-19 pandemic, these missions will be replaced with virtual missions to ensure we can still hold states and other entities to account during this unprecedented period. The missions will enable the MFRR to capture first hand information about a range of threats to press and media freedom, establish partners and contacts across the continent and engage directly with policy makers. Missions will be documented in meetings and reports that will be shared publicly and form the basis of future advocacy, as well as legal and practical support.
