Pressefreiheit ist für die EU-Beitrittskandidaten ein heikles Thema. In der Türkei sind dutzende Journalisten inhaftiert, der mazedonische Geheimdienst bespitzelt Medienschaffende und in Serbien werden kritische Journalisten zusammengeschlagen. Journalisten aus EU-Anwärterstaaten und hochrangige EU-Repräsentanten wie Elmar Brok und Andris Kesteris diskutieren über europäische Pressefreiheitsstandards. Sind diese nur Beiwerk bei den Beitritssverhandlungen? Wie agiert die EU? Was versprechen sich Journalisten in den Beitrittsländern? 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Press freedom in the countries seeking membership of the EU is a hot topic. Dozens of journalists are imprisoned and threatened in Turkey. In Macedonia the Secret Service spies on journalists and in Serbia critical journalists get beaten up. Journalists from candidate countries and our high-ranking EU politician Elmar Brok and the EU's Andris Kesteris put their heads together to discuss European press freedom standards. Are these just an afterthought in the accession negotiations? How is the EU responding? What are the aspirations of journalists in the candidate countries?
