IFEX Communiqué's top stories of the last 20 years
We started archiving the "Communiqué" on our website in 1998. Since then, the country we most covered has been Iraq, likely because it was one of the most dangerous places to be a journalist after the U.S.-led invasion in 2003. China, Colombia, Mexico, Russia, Philippines, Iran, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Tunisia (in that order) round out the top 10, the list itself reading like the world's danger zones for free expression.
But it's not goodbye: we're making way for a new and improved monthly publication that will reveal the context behind the free expression headlines, called "IFEX In Context" (coming to your inboxes this fall)!
We thought it only fitting that before we move on, we'd trawl through our online vaults and present you with some of our greatest hits. (Note: not all content is available in all languages.)
