PEN is strictly non-political, non-governmental organization with a category A status at UNESCO. It is composed of Centres, each of which represents its membership and not its country. Membership is open to all qualified writers, regardless of nationality, language, race, colour or religion, and every member is required to sign the P.E.N. Charter and by so doing to observe its conditions. Please note that P.E.N. is the only member of the Norwegian Human Rights House that operates from a different address.
