Since its early days, IPI has been known and respected for its research and publishing efforts – from comprehensive studies and surveys of the conditions in which the media operate, to training manuals for journalists in developing and transition countries, to detailed background papers for the specialised conferences and seminars that are an integral part of IPI’s work.
For its 60th anniversary, IPI prepared two important publications which were presented at the IPI World Congress 2010:
"Words of Freedom"
The commemorative "60 World Press Freedom Heroes" book is published to mark IPI’s 60 years of defending press freedom. This attractive coffee table-style book features the inspirational and often heart-rending stories of 60 courageous men and women who have made a significant contribution to the defence and promotion of press freedom in their country or region.

"IPI Report: Brave News Worlds"
This special report examines the future of the news media and the profession of journalism itself – from the impact of declining revenue streams and resources, to competition on the internet, to the rise of social media and the appearance of new platforms for delivering information.
Brave News Worlds explores what the next ten years holds for the news and journalism industry and offers insight into how journalists and non-journalists alike can take advantage of changes in the media and technology and make the future of news a bright one.
The publication is produced in collaboration with the Poynter Institute.
Edited by Poynter’s Bill Mitchell, the report brings together the diverse perspectives of 43 editors, journalists and media experts from over 20 countries to tackle issues such as facing regulatory challenges, harnessing emerging forms of journalism and the power of the public, and reframing traditional news models to better engage with audiences. With a focus on effective solutions and lessons learned, it is a vital tool for anyone with an interest in where we, as a global media, are headed and how to get there.
