The Media Ethics council`s activities are based on a comprehensive media ethics code that protects media values such as freedom of expression, diversity of information and views, editorial independence, media credibility, autonomy, journalist rights, integrity (objectivity), human rights, in particular the rights of children and minors, equality and the prohibition of discrimination, audience education, media and audiences mutual trust.

Self-regulation means that the media itself sets the conditions, rather than the laws, for professional behaviour and monitors their compliance. Promoting the development of self-regulatory practices in the media environment is one of the main objectives of the activities of the Media ethics council.

We call on the media, their organisations, and media professionals to become members of the “Latvian Media ethics council”.
