Freedom of Access to Information and Freedom of Expression (FAIFE) Advisory Committee

The overall objective of IFLA/FAIFE is to raise awareness of the essential correlation between the library concept and the values of intellectual freedom. To reach this goal IFLA/FAIFE collects and disseminates documentation and aims to stimulate a dialog both within and outside the library world.

FAIFE works to protect intellectual freedom and freedom of expression. This work includes:

  • Publish reports, participate in national and international conferences and organize workshops.
  • Monitor the state of intellectual freedom within the library community world-wide and publish newsletters and online news.
  • Respond to violations of free access to information and freedom of expression and make press releases.
  • Support IFLA policy development and co-operation with other international human rights organizations.
