Reporting from conflict zones: telling the stories of the victims

Date: 15 October 2009 Time: 6.00 - 8.00 pm

Venue: Management School Lecture Theatre 8

The 2009 Richardson Institute Annual Peace Lecture will be given by Sophie McNeill.

Sophie is an award winning foreign correspondent whose journalism has been praised as 'exceptional' by the celebrated journalist John Pilger. Sophie has covered some of the world's most difficult and dangerous stories from areas such as Iraq, Kurdistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Gaza and she has been based most recently in Jerusalem, Beirut and New York. Sophie's incredible talent, her courage as a journalist and her commitment to tell the stories of those affected by conflict and injustice have been recognised in the wide range of awards she has received, including the highest award for an Australian journalist - the Walkley Young Australian Journalist of the Year 2008; being a 2006 New York Film Festival finalist; being honoured as the 2008 YEN Young Woman of the Year and YEN Journalist of the Year; and being awarded Western Australia's Young Person of the Year Award (when she was just 16). Sophie's achievements are particularly remarkable given this seasoned foreign correspondent made her first documentary in a conflict zone when she was 15 years of age and is only 23.
