PEN International is guided by the ideals of the PEN Charter, which expresses every member’s commitment to protecting the free exchange of ideas and promoting the value of literature. PEN International also stands for a free press able to criticise governments, administrations and institutions freely, and opposes arbitrary censorship in time of peace. PEN International supports writers at risk, including journalists, and campaigns against abuses of writers and lobbies for the release of imprisoned writers.
