Seminar to Address What Every Reporter Covering Corruption Needs to Know
On the day before the start of its annual World Congress in Trinidad and Tobago, the International Press Institute (IPI) will host a one-day seminar for investigative reporters covering corruption.
Organised in cooperation with the U.S.-based Investigative News Network (INN), the IPI workshop will take place on 23 June 2012 in Port of Spain. The workshop program will focus on examples of successful journalism projects on corruption, including how these projects were accomplished, the methodologies used, and a special emphasis on how to collaborate internationally on investigations into political and corporate corruption and organised crime.
The workshop will be led by award-winning investigative reporters Brant Houston and David Kaplan; Sheila Coronel, founder of the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism; and Money Magazine’s Lisa Gibbs.
All participants will receive a certificate of completion with the IPI and INN seals.
As an added bonus, participants will take part in a luncheon with members of the IPI board of directors, hosted by Guardian Media Group limited in Trinidad. Participants can also take advantage of a special offer to register additionally for the World Congress for only US$ 550 (44 per cent off the full Congress price!). The workshop/congress combo will entitle the participant to a voucher for ½ price IPI membership for one year.
"We are very pleased to be offering this workshop, together with INN, to established journalists and aspiring investigative reporters from the Caribbean and around the world. Not only is it an opportunity to learn from some of the best, but it’s also an opportunity to network with other investigative journalists from around the world, " said IPI Executive Director Alison Bethel McKenzie.
The seminar will be held at the Hyatt Regency Trinidad on Saturday, 23 June 2012, from 09:30-18:00 (see the full seminar programme here). The 61st annual IPI World Congress will take place Sunday-Tuesday, 24-26 June.
