Founded in 1999, AIPCE is a loose-knit network of European press councils for print and broadcast media, which currently consists of 34 member countries; although there is neither formal membership nor a central secretariat. The annual conference is an opportunity for representatives of the media and the press councils to discuss topical issues, exchange ideas, offer and receive advice.
