Mission

Article 19 is a registered UK charity (No.32741) with headquarters in London, and field offices in Senegal, Kenya, Bangladesh, Mexico, and Brazil. Article 19 monitors, researches, publishes, lobbies, campaigns, sets standards and litigates on behalf of freedom of expression. In addition to providing expertise on international human rights standards and for legislation that protects the right to speak and right to know in countries emerging from conflict, war and genocide or repression, Article 19 also campaigns to safeguard media pluralism, independence and diversity of views.
