At the 2022 IPI World Congress, we’re more than a conference. We’re a movement for journalism. For two-and-a-half days, we’ll put journalism at the centre of the world, back where IPI first started in 1950 at Columbia University in New York.

The 2022 World Congress will run from September 8 to 10 as a truly global in-person and hybrid event. More details on speakers and sessions coming soon. Register online today!
