Information, media and democracy build a fragile triangle in our times. Vulnerable, exposed and suppressed, as they often are, media professionals work as a building block to enable societies in managing political life. Information integrity and healthy information ecosystems are crucial for true dialogue in open societies, not least in the run-up of elections worldwide.
