Mr. Eric Wishart is a former editor-in-chief of Agence France-Presse (AFP) and in December 2021 was appointed Standards and Ethics Editor within the agency’s global news management. He also lectures in journalism at Hong Kong University and Hong Kong Baptist University, teaching feature writing and international conflict reporting. His areas of expertise include media ethics, the challenges of misinformation, the erosion of trust in established media, press freedom, and the safety of journalists. A native of Glasgow, Scotland, in 1999 he became the first non-French editor-in-chief in the history of AFP, the world’s oldest news agency that traces its origins back to 1835.
