Unfortunately the conversation with Maria Ressa is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. We apologize for this and hopefully she will visit us at another time.


“When I was first arrested in 2019, the officer said, “Ma’am, trabaho lang po,” (Ma’am, I’m only doing my job). Then he lowered his voice to almost a whisper as he read my Miranda rights. He was clearly uncomfortable, and I almost felt sorry for him. Except he was arresting me because I’m a journalist!” – Maria Ressa

Philippine journalist Maria Ressa was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2021 for her search for truth and work for freedom of expression.

Welcome to a conversation about freedom of the press, democracy, and the conditions of journalists with Maria Ressa and the Nobel Prize Museum’s Carin Klaesson. The conversation is in English and begins at 17:00.
