“Principles & Values”

Charting your course through shifting societal expectations.

The theme for the FEAL National Conference 2018 is “Principles & Values”.
We are delighted to announce our key note speaker Peter Greste – Professor,  UNESCO Chair of Journalism and Communications at the University of Queensland.

As a freelancpeter-greste-photo-_-claxton-speakers-filee reporter, Peter worked for the BBC and Reuters. He filed TV and news reports covering wars in Afghanistan, Somalia, DRC and South Sudan.

In 2011, Peter joined Al Jazeera as its East Africa Correspondent. He went to Cairo to cover the Christmas/New Year period in 2013, and two weeks after he arrived, security agents burst into his hotel room and arrested him and his colleagues. He was charged with aiding a banned organisation – the Muslim Brotherhood; financing a banned organisation and broadcasting false news. The court convicted Peter and his colleagues, and sentenced them to between seven and ten years of hard labor.
While in prison, Peter began a masters degree in International Relations with Griffith University. Later in 2015, he became an honorary doctor of the university, for his services to journalism.

In February 2015, Peter was deported on an order of the Egyptian president, though he was included in the subsequent retrial that began a month later. Peter and his colleagues were once again convicted in the retrial though with their sentences reduced to three years. Their case has been widely condemned as an abuse of due process and their fundamental human rights. Peter continues to campaign for freedom of the press and to support other journalists in prison.

In April 2016 Peter was awarded the ANZAC Peace Prize.
