Join UNESCO Chair in Journalism and Communication, Professor Peter Greste and a panel of leading experts, academics and critics for a thought-provoking discussion on 'Freedom of Speech'.

The event will challenge perceptions and test the notion of a 'free speech crisis' in the university sector and society. Our experts reflect on contentious issues surrounding free speech, discuss the social implications and ask what it means for the nation's democracy.

This event is brought to you by UQ and the ABC, as part of ABC's 'Think Twice' TV series and will be broadcast on the ABC at a later date.

Registrations open early March.
