31/01/2020 | 10:37:00 Thank you very much, Mr President. First of all I would like to thank Mr Frithjof SCHMIDT for his work because the report is incredibly interesting. It is an important one. It deals with something that affects us directly, especially democratic societies, the most advanced of those societies. I was listening to the colleagues who have already spoke in the debate. They were looking at the differences between traditional means of communication and digital media. I don't think that is the... 28/01/2020 | 18:06:02 Thank you very much, Mister President. The first thing that I would like to do is to thank this very detailed work by Lord George FOULKES. This time he is addressing the important subject of the work of journalists, and, as he has done already in his excellent report, I want to make an appeal on behalf of journalism.

The Council of Europe has existed for 70 years, and we now must look towards the next 70 years. It must continue for another 70 years, and continue to grow by further promoting democracy, human rights and the rule of law. This is a free debate, however, and although I came along with the idea of... 12/04/2019 | 12:07:34 I thank colleagues for their contributions to the debate. I will try to give an overall answer to the points raised. Our starting point was Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights on freedom of expression. Many of us confuse freedom of information with freedom of expression; the two are often melded. At the end of the day, this is about plurality. We have drafted a number of reports on this subject; Lord George FOULKES, for instance, recently presented one. The committee will...
