Freedom of speech is Bonnier’s oldest and most deeply held core value, and our views concerning media ownership are described in our vision for journalism.

Our media inform public opinion on freedom of speech issues and journalists who have had their freedom of speech silenced. Such as Expressen’s engagement in freeing Dawit Isaak, the Swedish citizen and journalist who has been imprisoned in Eritrea since 2001.

To acknowledge professional journalism, Bonnier funds a number of journalism awards.
