Maria Ressa: Gavin MacFadyen Memorial Lecture
A Filipino-American journalist and author and co-founder of the innovative news site Rappler.com, Maria Ressa delivers our annual Gavin MacFadyen Memorial Lecture.
Maria has been fearlessly reporting on the extrajudicial killings and human rights violations occurring in the Philippines under the Duterte regime. She discusses the difficulties of investigative reporting under intense pressure from the government on both her organisation and herself. She talks about journalism, technology, networks, Facebook, persecution from authorities, freedom of expression and much more.
Other #CIJSummer 2019 Talks are available to watch on replay on our YouTube Channel.
Maria Ressa is a Filipino-American journalist and author, best known for co-founding Rappler as its Chief Executive Officer. She previously spent nearly two decades working as a lead investigative reporter in Southeast Asia for CNN.
