The IPA’s workshop for publishers will look at specific cases that have challenged the freedom to publish and how the sector has responded. The workshop will then identify the range of challenges and how such cases can be tackled better.


Representatives of publishers associations from Canada, France, Germany, Georgia, Norway and the UK will deliver quick-fire presentations outlining their national context and their work to promote freedom of expression and fight restrictions to the freedom to publish.

The workshop will then drill down on three aspects: Pressure on Publishers, Platforms for discussion and Awareness Raising to identify national and international approaches to different types of challenge. What partnerships can help? Where is international cooperation helpful?
