Since its establishment in 1976, LYMEC has defended the cornerstone liberal principles of equal justice and adherence to the rule of law. Whether in the context of protecting media freedoms, privacy rights, minority rights, judicial independence or calling out corruption, LYMEC strongly believes that the rule of law is central to the governing of a strong, flourishing, democratic society.

Journalistic Freedoms

LYMEC is a proud supporter of journalistic freedoms and has always stood in solidarity with journalists standing up to repressive regimes who seek to undermine the free press. Over the years, we have called on numerous investigations and urged the European Parliament to adopt a regulation condemning the persecution and torture of journalists and activists and monitor the compliance of individual EU member states.
