Olivia Pirie-Griffiths is Executive Director of the Alliance for Journalists’ Freedom (AJF) – an organisation founded by Peter Greste, Chris Flynn and Peter Wilkinson after Greste’s release from prison in Egypt. The AJF works with Australian governments to ensure legislation supports media freedom. They also campaign in the Asia–Pacific when journalists are censored, threatened, imprisoned or killed. The Press Freedom Tracker (PFT) is a recently launched AJF project which tracks press freedom incidents in the Asia–Pacific. The purpose of the PFT is to ensure a comprehensive understanding of the regional challenges facing democracy, in order to build relationships and trust in the region.
