TV3 newsreader John Campbell expects to make a few waves when he discusses media coverage of the war in Iraq at Otago University's Foreign Policy School next month.

Mr Campbell, who previously worked as a political journalist, is looking forward to giving his lecture, during the annual school, devoted to "The Ethics of Foreign Policy".

He is believed to be the first New Zealand journalist to give a lecture at the prestigious school, during its 38-year history.

School co-director Associate Prof Robert Patman invited Mr Campbell after being impressed with his "fresh" and "probing" approach as a political journalist, both on National Radio and television.

More than 120 people, including several leading international speakers, will attend the four-day school at Otago University.

Foreign Affairs Minister Phil Goff will give the opening address on June 27.
