The session will open with the presentation of the study What freedom of publication for independent publishers? initiated by the International Alliance of Independent Publishers and presented by Canadian author and researcher Anne-Marie Voisard. The IPA’s very own James Taylor, Director of Communications and Freedom to Publish will lead a discussion to better understand the actions taken to fight against the new forms of barriers to the dissemination of the written word with:

  • Kadiatou Konaré, founder of Canaris Livres and honorary consul of Haïti to Mali;
  • Emmanuel Pierrat, President, PEN Club France;
  • Alexis Krikorian, senior partnership manager, Amnesty International Suisse.
  • Anne-Marie Voisard, Canadian author and researcher 

You can learn more about the study in a recent interview with Anne-Marie Voisard in Actualitté (in French).
