This is the preliminary agenda for our virtual IPI World Congress 2020. We are developing a condensed programme to stay both connected and allied in solidarity in these uncertain times when media freedom and quality journalism are ever so important.

This year’s Congress is postponed, not cancelled, and it will be back in real life in New York in September 2021. We’re working with our hosts at Columbia University to set the dates, so please watch this space for updates. Meanwhile – join us here, online! Registration opens soon! 

Contact International Press Institute (IPI) for more details.
