We take our name from Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

ARTICLE 19 monitors, researches, publishes, lobbies, campaigns, sets standards and litigates on behalf of freedom of expression wherever it is threatened.

We provide expertise on international human rights standards and for legislation that protects everyone’s right to speak and right to know.

We campaign to safeguard media pluralism, independence and diversity of views.

We promote the right to know of poorer communities and advocate for the implementation of freedom of information legislation to ensure transparency and strengthen citizens’ participation.
