Have your say on EPRA's revised Strategy for the next three years

The Executive Board is opening a new consultation on a revised three-year Strategy document.

The pandemic of Covid-19 that struck in March this year has brought an unprecedented crisis with long-lasting impacts in all areas of life. In that sense, the Executive Board decided to amend the original draft initially planned for adoption in spring 2020 in order to reflect on the impact of the pandemic on the media, and to defer the entry into force of the revised Strategy to 2021. 


The draft is composed of three main parts:

  • the introductory section provides background, context and highlights challenges
  • the second section sets out the Vision, Mission and Values Statement, and,
  • the third part lists the envisaged Strategic Objectives for the period 2021-2023.

The content of the draft has been generated by the members of the Executive Board and the Secretariat based on our understanding of the work of EPRA and our knowledge of EPRA members and their current experiences and challenges. We also took into consideration the inputs provided by the membership during the review of EPRA’s past performance, the brainstorming debate on the new Strategy which took place in October 2019 in Athens and the impact of the Covid-19 crisis on the media sector, our members and the work of EPRA.


We would very much welcome feedback and input into the refinement of this draft.  In order to do so, it might be helpful to consider a number of questions, such as:


  •  Do you think that the draft accurately captures and reflects the challenges faced by media regulators and EPRA as an organisation for the next three years?
  • Do you agree with the Board’s analysis that the Vision, Mission and Values Statement remains fully relevant and appropriate for EPRA’s future strategy?
  • Are the draft Strategic Objectives and the envisaged key actions and concrete outputs appropriate given the nature of the challenges facing EPRA? 


Please send your feedback to the EPRA Secretariat no later than 30 September
