The International Press Institute (IPI) is a global network of editors, media executives and leading journalists who share a common dedication to quality, independent journalism. Together, we promote the conditions that allow journalism to fulfill its public function, the most important of which is the media’s ability to operate free from interference and without fear of retaliation. Our mission is to defend media freedom and the free flow of news wherever they are threatened. IPI was formed at Columbia University following the Second World War by 34 leading editors from 15 countries on the belief that a free press would contribute to the creation of a better world. IPI today includes members in more than 100 countries across the globe united in the belief that freedom of expression is “the right that protects all other rights” and must be protected and defended.Something looks off?
