Freedom to Publish Committee

Using the IPA Freedom to Publish Manifesto, the FtPC sets the IPA's activism agenda with regard to freedom to publish worldwide. The nine-member committee meets regularly to discuss FTP violations and responses to them. It is also responsible for managing the IPA Prix Voltaire, the only award that specifically recognizes the freedom to publish, without which many forms of freedom of expression would be impossible.
