Member

Peter Noorlander

Peter has spent his professional life defending the right to freedom of expression and journalists around the world. A former member of ARTICLE 19’s legal team, he co-founded and led MediaDefence.org, which provides legal defence to journalists, and he has been at the heart of international campaigns on issues such as the right to information and ending the imprisonment of journalists for defamation. Peter is passionate about leaving the planet in a better state than he found it and he volunteers his time fundraising and providing support for Extinction Rebellion which he urges you to support – the disruption they cause is nothing compared to what we face when we don’t reverse our destructive habits. Peter is a trustee of Privacy International, which fights for a world where technology will empower and enable us, not exploit our data for profit and power; and of Doc Society, a non-profit committed to enabling great documentary films and connecting them to audiences globally. He consults on issues of media law and policy, civil society empowerment and organisational development. When he’s not at his desk he’s probably out running.
