The International Press Institute (IPI), the global network of editors, media executives and leading journalists for press freedom, will hold its 2020 World Congress in New York City in the United States.

The IPI World Congress will be co-hosted by Columbia University and the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism to commemorate the occasion of its 70th anniversary from September, 10 to 12, 2020. IPI was founded at Columbia in 1950 by 34 editors from 15 countries to defend journalistic quality and independence.

The 2020 Congress will see IPI members and other leading editors, journalists, media executives and experts from all over the world gather in New York for two-and-a-half days of engaging discussions, roundtables, workshops and Question and Answer sessions addressing key questions for today’s journalism.

In the coming days, IPI will also announce the leading news organizations and other institutions that will partner with IPI for the 2020 World Congress and the 70th-anniversary celebration.
