Established in 1987, ARTICLE 19 works for a world where all people everywhere can freely express themselves and actively engage in public life without fear of discrimination. Our mission is to promote and defend the universal human rights of freedom of expression and information around the world, through international advocacy, legal analysis, and regional and national projects.

In the previous five years, one of the key achievements of ARTICLE 19 has been expanding and strengthening our international reach by consolidating our presence outside the UK, recruiting national or regional staff, and establishing strong and operationally autonomous national or regional offices.  Being based in the countries and regions on which we work, we believe we have a better understanding of regional and national realities and local needs and thus have greater impact on freedom of expression developments. We are able to respond more swiftly to opportunities or crises. We are closer to our partners, and thus more capable to respond to their demands and strengthen interactions and capacities. ARTICLE 19 regional/national offices are able to rely on ARTICLE 19’s international work, legal and policy expertise, and its reputation for delivery and impact, and bring all of these qualities and characteristics to national debates for a stronger protection of the right to access to information and freedom of expression.
