“Only free and independent journalism can meet the challenge of the moment”: 2022 IPI World Congress, Sept 8-10, NYC

The world’s leading editors, publishers, and journalists will be coming together at the 2022 IPI World Congress in New York City – Sept. 8-10 – to work on how publishers can remain free and independent at a time of increasing censorship and authoritarianism.

Hosted by the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, Columbia University, and IPI’s North American Committee, the Congress will feature Nobel Peace Prize laureates Dmitry Muratov and Maria Ressa.

Congress sessions include innovation, product development, and media sustainability –all crucial factors to keep independent media healthy and able to carry out their core democratic mission. The 2022 IPI World Congress will additionally host panels and roundtables – including one with media funders and investors – masterclasses, plenaries, and one-on-one conversations.

The event will also, crucially, talk about the threat to journalism from the all-encompassing power of tech platforms with The Tow Center’s Emily Bell, The Markup’s Julia Angwin, and Siddharth Varadarajan of India’s The Wire, among others. 

The Congress’s flagship Town Hall session will focus on how to counter disinformation and harassment campaigns targeting fact-based journalism. Supported by the Simon and June Li Center for Global Journalism, the panel includes The Washington Post Executive Editor Sally Buzbee and Michael Slackman, assistant managing editor for international at The New York Times.
