Core Work for
Journalists’ Freedom

We run very lean. We have one full-time executive director. We rent one desk in the CBD with resources donated by Wilkinson Butler and Gilbert + Tobin.

Our activities include:

  • Leading the conversation on reform. Our White Paper, developed with Gilbert + Tobin, guides the conversation on media freedom reforms that are needed. We also contribute to parliamentary inquiries by writing submissions and attending hearings when required.
  • Calling for a Media Freedom Act, a reviewed definition of journalism that reflects the new diverse environment, and developing a Voluntary Certification Program that includes constant learning for Australian Journalists.
  • Developing relationships in Canberra, including being advanced on a National Dialogue that brings together security forces, government, publishers and journalists to develop common goals that strengthen democracy.
  • Contributing to public awareness, with our nimble response to issues that constantly arise, led by our spokesperson, Professor Peter Greste.
  • Building relationships in the industry and seeking opportunities for partnerships and collaborations that benefit the future of journalism.
  • Coordinating and developing the AJF’s Major Projects.
