Andorra

Dependent on business and politics

The media are very dependent on business, political, and religious interests in the principality. Constantly recurring conflicts of interest and difficulty covering the activities of Andorra’s banks are the biggest problems for journalists. Although Andorra is not an EU member, the environment for journalists is similar to that in neighboring countries. No law specifically protects journalists, but the confidentiality of their sources is covered by the principle of professional confidentiality. A law that took effect in 2014 established the principle of journalists’ civil liability.
