Press Freedom Advocacy Campaigns

WAN-IFRA  speaks out in defence of press freedom to reduce censorship and champion the editorial and economic independence of media. Our advocacy campaigns in support of colleagues from around the globe are endorsed and promoted by members, local Media Freedom Committees, professional colleagues and peers from the global human rights and freedom of expression community.

WAN-IFRA’s advocacy actions include large scale lobbying campaigns, coordinated press freedom missions, awareness-raising activities and events to strengthen legal and regulatory frameworks, reduce censorship and confront other challenges to the editorial and economic independence of media. Our network of influential publishers and editors provides it with access to the highest levels of government and other institutions.
