IPS completed early April the first half-a-century of concerted efforts to balance the systematically unbalanced flow of information between the South and the North, acting as the voice of the South and promoting South-South understanding and communication.

This event coincides with a new phase in IPS life – marked by new challenges emerging from rapid advance of communication and information technologies, globalization and the world financial crisis, which is severely impacting not only the low-income and middle income economies but also the high income ones, causing deeper social inequalities, and greater imbalances in international relations.

These challenges encourage IPS to further consolidate its proven experience in heralding the voice of the voiceless, the millions of marginalized human beings, and to continue informing about the deep transitional process which most of the countries of the South have been undergoing.

With this in view, IPS has launched a process of intensive in-house consultation aimed at harnessing the innate strength of the organization, optimizing its editorial and administrative capacity to build on its professional and human resources, and to rethink ways of implementing the IPS mission in a situation that is different from that in 1964, when Roberto Savio and Pablo Piacentini co-founded the organization, which has survived the tempests of time thanks due to the unstinting commitment of  ‘IPS-ians’ in their capacity as donors, advisers, administrators, writers, contributors and editors (RJ).
