NOTE: This webinar includes Spanish interpretation.
Practicing investigative journalism can be extraordinarily dangerous in much of the world. Reporting on corruption and human rights has claimed the lives of more journalists than working in war zones, as powerful people seek to silence the stories the press investigates. And they do it with impunity, with conviction rates for murdering journalists at just 14%. Often, the only way to keep alive our colleagues’ reporting is through collaboration. This was seen when teams of journalists came together after the murders of Daphne Caruana Galizia from Malta and Jan Kuciak in Slovakia. The resulting investigations are having lasting impact.
In this GIJN webinar, we bring together five investigative journalists from Mexico, France, India and the United States. They will offer tips and tools on how to continue the work of murdered journalists, with a focus on working collaboratively and across borders. This webinar is inspired by the work of The Cartel Project, which took up the work of Mexican journalist Regina Martinez after she was found beaten and strangled in her home in 2012.
The session will be moderated by Marina Walker Guevara, Executive Editor at the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting and formerly Deputy Director at the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.
