SIGNIS is committed to supporting the development of a society in which all sectors of the population have the opportunity to contribute to the common good. This means that people must have the right to express their opinions freely, to participate in public discussion and to be able to access the media freely.
The exercise of these rights (and corresponding duties) will be impossible unless there is also media pluralism and media regulation that is fair, transparent and accountable. At the same time rights to privacy must be respected and the young and vulnerable given appropriate protection from media exploitation.
