Cartooning for Peace provides support and visibility to cartoonists who are threatened and prevented from exercising their profession freely. Through this mission, the organisation asserts its commitment to defending freedom of expression when its infringement is directly linked to press cartoons.
Press cartoonists are a “barometer of freedom of expression”, often on the front line of repression, highlighting sensitive areas around the world.
Cartooning for Peace alerts and provides support, but believes that prevention is also the key to success. Thus, the organisation monitors and informs itself about the situation of press cartoonists in the world, contributes to providing them with visibility that can sometimes be life-saving, produces practical tools, publishes reports and, above all, sets up projects to provide resources and advice.
