- Inter American Press Association
The Inter American Press Association (IAPA) is a press advocacy group representing media organizations in North America, South America and the Caribbean.
Founded in 1942, it represents more than 1,300 newspapers and magazines in the Americas.
IAPA's stated objectives are to defend press freedom; protect the interests of the press in the Americas; promote responsible journalism; and encourage high standards of professional and business conduct.
IAPA has two autonomous affiliates – the IAPA Press Institute, which offers Latin American members advice on technical publishing matters, and the IAPA Scholarship Fund, which provides funds for educational activities.
IAPA is a member of the International Freedom of Expression Exchange, a global network of more than 70 non-governmental organisations that monitors press freedom and freedom of expression violations worldwide.
