Formed in 1992, IFEX is a global network of more than 100 civil society organizations based in over 70 countries that promote and defend freedom of expression and access to information as a fundamental human right.
IFEX is a network whose strength lies in the local knowledge and grassroots efforts of our members and the connections that are built through collaborating for the common goal of defending and promoting free expression. No other network brings together such a range of international and local free expression groups, enhancing international understanding of the issues and creating opportunities for advocacy work.
The combined efforts of the many actors involved in each project and campaign are essential for succeeding in our goal to improve freedom of expression for all.
One of IFEX's strategic work objectives is to improve security and access to justice, by strengthening the normative environment and protection practices governing freedom of expression and information and seeking justice for those who suffer violations of their right to freedom of expression.
