Peter ter Velde

Project Manager
Amsterdam, Netherlands
As a televison reporter Peter ter Velde reported from many war zones and crisis areas such as Iraq, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Egypt, Haiti and Indonesia.
From 1996 to 2001, Peter was an Israel based correspondent for the Dutch national broadcaster NOS.
From 2006 to 2010 he was a special reporter on Afghanistan where he stayed for 4 to 5 months a year.
At the end of 2008, he wrote the book 'Kabul & Kamp Holland’, an exploration of the daily life of the many different ethnic groups living in Afghanistan that combines the history of Afghanistan, a look at the Dutch mission in the hostile province of Uruzgan as well as his meeting with Taliban fighters.
Since 2006, Ter Velde, his cameraman Eric Feijten and photographer Hans Stakelbeek started collecting amateur video's from soldiers. Realizing that this amazing footage gave such an insight in the lives of soldiers on the front lines, Ter Velde c.s. produced the documentary ‘Fokking Hell!’ that was broadcasted in several countries such as the Netherlands, China, France and Argentina. 
In 2011 Peter wrote the novel ‘De vader en de zoon’ (The father and the son), a semi-autobiography about his life in a Christian family. In 2014 he wrote his second novel ‘Paradijs om de hoek’ (Paradise around the corner).
Back in the Netherlands Peter developed the training ‘Reporting in Conflict Zones’ that is given a couple of times a year by the academy of the Journalists Union. He is also instructor of the Hostile Environment Safety Training by the European Broadcasting Union.
In 2015 Peter became Foreign News (ended in 2020) and Security Coordinator for NOS News. He is member of the Crisis Management Team of the NOS.
In 2019 he also became project manager of PersVeilig, an initiative by national police, the prosecutors office and the media industry to make work for journalists in the Netherlands safer.
