This year, UNESCO’s theme for World Press Freedom Day is Freedom of expression as a driver for all other human rights. We couldn’t agree more!
As a global network that has been promoting and defending freedom of expression for 30 years, IFEX decided to choose this year’s WPFD to launch our latest Annual Report.
Check it out! You’ll find a wealth of information and stories from a year that produced more than its share of challenges to the right to freedom of expression, but also saw key successes: landmark legal rulings, successful campaigns, and opportunities to build counterpower. Through individual and collaborative action, this network continued to push back against the erosion of civic space and the undermining of democracies.
