NOTE: This webinar includes French interpretation.
Investigating cases of official misconduct, corruption and aggression, and challenging official narratives, stand at the heart of investigative journalism. In this global GIJN webinar, co-organized with the African Investigative Journalism Conference, we bring together four experienced journalists: two from Africa and two from outside the continent, who have investigated law enforcement. They will share their experience and reporting techniques ranging from source development to forensic analysis.
Amal El Mekki is editor-in-chief of Innsane, a storytelling platform she co-founded in May 2020. She focuses on human rights and has worked with Tunisian media and international outlets. Her investigation, "S17: Victims of the Ministry of Interior's Whim" revealed how the Tunisian Interior Ministry's illegal border practices prevented thousands of Tunisians from traveling abroad. She is the first Tunisian journalist to win an access of information case against the Interior Ministry.
Daneel Knoetze is the founder and editor of Viewfinder, an accountability journalism nonprofit in South Africa. His reporting focuses on police criminality and the failure of police oversight mechanisms in South Africa. He is a graduate of Rhodes University and, in 2017-18, was a Hubert H. Humphrey Fellow in the United States, where he worked with Reveal at the Center for Investigative Reporting in San Francisco.
