The IP which now boasts to host a cluster of about 120 nations , was formed at Columbia University following the Second World War by 34 leading editors from 15 countries on the belief that a free press would contribute to the creation of a better world.
IPI promotes press freedom via: –

2) Press Freedom missions to global hot spots
3) Events like World Congress and General Assembly
4) Publications including the World Press Freedom Review
The International Press Of Model United Nations stresses upon sculpting the basic aspect of being a full blown journalist who showcases the traits of an unbiased reporter. Instead of representing the interests of a single country, the International Press Delegation allows participants to act as impartial journalists, reporting on the proceedings of each simulation in the Conference. They would investigate committee debates, conduct interviews, edit articles, and cover press conferences. Their work would be published in the SOL MUN newsletter.
