IPI Membership is open to anyone active in the field of journalism, in news media outlets, as freelancers, in schools of journalism or in defence of press freedom rights, who supports the principle of freedom of the press and desires to co-operate in achieving IPI’s objectives. The most important requirement is a commitment to media freedom and independent journalism.
IPI has members in more than 80 countries around the world, as well as 18 National Committees, which serve as IPI’s local chapters. IPI members actively participate in IPI’s advocacy work, country visits, missions and awareness campaigns.
We would not be able to fulfil our mission without the support and engagement of our members. Through their dues, our members support IPI and one another and make a critical contribution to promoting and defending media freedom and the free flow of quality news.
