Key Issues Regarding Media Freedom in Croatia for 2024


Media freedom continues to stand perilously close to breaking point in many EU countries and in some, it needs to be almost completely revived, Liberties’ Media Freedom Report 2024 finds. 

In Croatia in 2023, in general, key issues were the rising number of physical attacks against journalists, in addition to threats and intimidation, abusive lawsuits known as strategic lawsuits against public participation (SLAPPs) that were frequently used against journalists, high media ownership concentration, growing concerns about government influence over public media service. In addition, civil society organisations reported attempts to censor members of the press or otherwise restrict freedom of expression.

The Media Freedom Report 2024 is the third annual report on media freedom in the European Union (EU) produced by the Civil Liberties Union for Europe (Liberties). It is based on data and input from Liberties’ members and partner organisations and complements Liberties’ annual Rule of Law Report. The national country report on the Rule of Law for 2024 was produced by the Centre for Peace Studies and the Croatian Platform for International Citizen Solidarity - CROSOL.
