A crucial part of IPA's mission is to inform member associations and the wider global publishing community about breaking developments which will impact publishers. We do this through a number of channels. the IPA website, our monthly e-newsletter, press releases and the IPA's dedicated social media feeds.

The Association of American Publishers (AAP) today awarded Editorial Dahbar, Venezuela, the 2022 AAP International Freedom to Publish | Jeri Laber Award. Given annually, the award recognizes a publisher outside the United States who has demonstrated courage and fortitude in defending freedom of expression.  In bestowing this award, AAP has long been guided by the principle that if one of us is denied the right to publish, that threat affects us all.
