Non-profit investigative journalism centres around the world: a list

Jessica Weiss’ piece about ‘Investigative 2.0’ on the International Journalists’ Network, flags up that there are now more than 50 non-profit investigative journalism organisations around the world:

“The first three nonprofits dedicated to investigative journalism were all American: the Fund for Investigative Journalism (1969), Investigative Reporters and Editors (1975), and the Center for Investigative Reporting (1977).

“Now, there are more than 50 worldwide, and more than half of those are since 2000. Global networks such as ICIJ – made up of 100 journalists in 50 countries, and currently looking to expand – are providing the platform for reporters to connect for cross-border investigations. Local and regional centers, such as Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism; the Romanian Centre for Investigative Journalism, and the Forum for African Investigative Reporters (FAIR), connect journalists for reporting, networking, conferences, trainings and more. FAIR is sponsoring Africa’s first big investigative reporting conference later this month in Johannesburg.”

You can find a list of excellent resources on the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists page at this link.
