Between 1993 and 1996, IFEX consolidated its structure, built an outreach programme to support free expression organisations in the Global South, and constructed a website and database to house our growing archive of free expression materials. By 2007 we had developed a strategic campaigns and advocacy programme. Most recently, IFEX embarked on an extensive digital transformation process, aimed at maximising the impact of our communications materials and campaigns.
IFEX now encompasses a much wider membership, with more southern members and more local and regional members from around the world. Today, more than 80 IFEX network members in 60 countries work together to defend and promote free expression, drawing the world's attention to these issues through the strategic use of new media and mobile technologies and participating in joint advocacy campaigns and capacity building programmes.
