The European Union is preparing guidelines on Freedom of Expression. This document will become a reference for EU Delegations in third countries and for the 28 EU Member State embassies and Foreign Ministries. It will impact on how the EU addresses freedom of the press violations and engage in media support in-country.
According to the website of the European External Action Service (EEAS): 
" The EU guidelines on Freedom of expression, which should be adopted in the coming months, will ensure a maximum of coherence and consistency in EU and EUMS actions, as well as a reinforced visibility of the EU commitment on freedom of expression.

They will build upon existing instruments and documents, recalling key principles and containing clearly defined priorities and tools for the promotion of freedom of expression.
They will explain what the international human rights standards on freedom of expression are, and give clear political lines to all EU officials. They also provide them with practical guidance on how both to seek to prevent violations of Freedom of expression and how to react effectively to violations wherever they occur.
The European External Action Service (EEAS) would like to consult civil society while drafting these guidelines, opening up public consultations through the EEAS internet page. Please use the link here
