Since the launch of the Impunity Project in 1995 the IAPA has focused on submitting to the Inter American Commission on Human Rights cases of murdered journalists, once legal recourses have been exhausted in the respective countries. The IAPA submitted the first six cases in 1997 and since then has not ceased seeking justice to be done through the inter-American system.

Cases submitted to the IACHR since 1997: 27
