The job of the investigative journalist is to uncover facts the public should know about - but aren't allowed to. This workshop will explore the context for investigative reporting in the digital age and new models to allow its practice today. The workshop will show you where to find hidden information, how to access documents and data, and how to use investigative skills in your practice.
During this intensive one-day seminar curated by Dean Starkman, senior editor at the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and Fellow at Center for Media, Data and Society, and Peter Geoghegan, investigations editor at openDemocracy will present cutting edge investigations and show you how to cut through the spin to get to the story.
The workshop will show you how to use investigative skills with useful tools for academics, bloggers, campaigners, activists, charities and anyone with an interest in holding the powerful to account. As well as getting the inside track on key stories like the Panama Papers and the Paradise Papers, the seminar will include hands-on instruction in how to use investigative approaches and resources in your work and an opportunity to discuss your work with the trainers.
