Two years from the Panama Papers, investigative journalism is at a shift. Many promising, larger and smaller initiatives saw journalists working cross-borders, helping each other writing new stories, protecting each other, exposing the corrupt. The impact of these initiatives was often huge.
With this interactive event we aim to start a debate on opportunities, lessons learned and challenges in current cross-border investigate journalism exposing corruption. We will look at how journalists can work in difficult environments, with limited resources, and how we can involve new journalists to join us. We will also aim to look at initiatives to support investigative journalists and discuss the impact that their work has on law enforcement practitioners. Finally, we aim to look at how actors from the public and CSO sectors who benefit from investigative journalism can work more closely with journalists in exposing corruption.
This workshop proposal is a cooperation of GIZ, CiFAR, and GIJN
