International Press

Covering the conference

"No experiment can be more interesting than what we are now trying, and which we trust will end in establishing the fact, that man may be governed by reason and truth. Our first object should therefore be, to leave open to him all the avenues to truth. The most effectual hitherto found, is the freedom of press. It is, therefore, the first shut up by those who fear the investigation of their actions"
Thomas Jefferson
3rd President of the United States

Divulging information is a cardinal constituent of the democratic decision-making system, as it brings transparency into society and for its part warrants that the made decrees go along with the people’s sense of justice. To ensure that there is a prospect for civil advocacy, it is important that the citizens are informed of decisions already when they are being prepared. On the one hand, the press dispatches information to the citizens about the affairs transpiring in society, and on the other hand,  it makes policymakers cognisant of the repercussions of their decisions.

The freedom and existence of press is not just important to democracy, it is democracy.

Thus, the International Press plays an important role in the real world, and in any conference. The delegates of the International Press are expected to convey the words of important diplomats to the common public, through articles and photographs.
