We regret to advise that this event has been cancelled. Tickets will be refunded.

Peter Greste spent 400 days in jail for doing his job. All over the world, journalists pay with their liberty and sometimes their lives in pursuit of one simple thing: the truth. Should there be a charter of journalistic freedom in international law? In conversation with media law experts Jason Bosland and Daniel Joyce, Peter Greste will discuss how such a charter might be implemented, and why protecting journalists matters.

Presented by the Centre for Advancing Journalism and the Centre for Media and Communications Law at the University of Melbourne.
