1 OBSTACLES TO FREE SPEECH AND THE SAFETY OF JOURNALISTS Friday 3 May 2013 Speakers Bios Professor Jackie Harrison is Professor of Public Communication and Chair of the Centre for Freedom of the Media (CFOM) at the University of Sheffield. She has written three single authored books; is the joint author of three and a co-editor of a further two books and numerous papers and chapters. A consistent theme of her work is the civil role and power of news and she is currently completing a book entitled The Civil Power of the News which examines the way that the news frames our invariant civil concerns and influences public sentiment in terms of the boundaries we place and maintain around what we regard as the civil sphere. She is part of a team undertaking work on different news media legal and policy regimes; the failures and abuses of news media freedom and violence against the news media and news journalists. Her most recent publications include papers on the relationship between news, religion and politics, news and freedom of expression and the early history of European public communication policy and its civil narrative. She is currently working on a research project that will look at how the notion of the public has been used by different organisations, groups, agencies and advocacy groups both during and since the Leveson inquiry and contrasting that with what the public actually think about news journalism reforms. Professor Bill Bowring is Professor of Law at Birkbeck College, University of London where he teaches Human Rights, Public International Law and Minority Rights. He previously taught at the University of East London, Essex University, the University of North London, and London Metropolitan University. He is also a practising barrister specialising in human rights, representing applicants against Russia, Georgia and Latvia, at the European 1

2 Court of Human Rights, and is founder and Chair of the International Steering Committee of the European Human Rights Advocacy Centre (EHRAC). He has more than 90 publications, including The Degradation of the International Legal Order? The Rehabilitation of Law and the Possibility of Politics (Routledge, 2008). His Law Rights and Ideology in Russia: Landmarks in the Destiny of a Great Power was published in April 2013, also from Routledge. He advises the Council of Europe, EU, OSCE and UN on human rights and minority rights. He was a founding member of the Bar Human Rights Committee, and is currently a member of its Executive Committee. He is also a Trustee of the Redress Trust (Reparation for Torture Survivors), is International Secretary of the Haldane Society of Socialist Lawyers, and President of the European Association of Lawyers for Democracy and Human Rights (ELDH). He has been working regularly in Russia since 1983, and speaks Russian. Geoffrey Robertson QC is founder and head of Doughty Street Chambers, the UK's largest human rights practice. He has argued many landmark media law cases including Goodwin v UK (which established the rights of journalists in Europe to protect their sources), and Jameel v Wall Street Journal (which secured a pubic interest defence to libel actions) As President of the UN War Crimes Court in Sierra Leone, he handed down what remains the leading judgment on the testamentary privileges for war correspondents and their sources. As long-time counsel for the Wall Street Journal he has represented its staff in many commonwealth courtrooms and he acted for the journalist Paul Klebnikov, later assassinated in Moscow, in the defamation brought against him by Boris Beresovsky. At the Old Bailey he appeared for "Oz", "Gay News" and for the National Theatre when it was prosecuted by Mary Whitehouse for staging The Romans in Britain. In other free speech cases he has acted for client s ranging from Salman Rushdie and Julian Assange, to Mike Tyson and the Sex Pistols. His books include Robertson & Nicol on Media Law; People against the Press; and Crimes Against Humanity - the Struggle for Global Justice. Last week his report on media law and regulation, commissioned by the government of Mauritius, was published, which rejected Leveson in favour of a statutory Ombudsperson system. 2
