GIJN Welcomes 10 New Members

The Global Investigative Journalism Network is delighted to welcome 10 new member organizations. We are particularly pleased to welcome for the first time groups from Ghana, Liberia, Malaysia, New Zealand, and Venezuela. Among the new members are award-winning reporting centers in Serbia and South Africa, online publishers in Malaysia and Venezuela, an African cross-border reporting network, and training groups based in Liberia, Germany, Mexico, and the Netherlands. The new additions bring GIJN's global membership to 138 groups in 62 countries. Welcome, everyone!


IRE expects 1,000 muckrakers and data geeks this week in New Orleans for its annual conference. Be sure to say hi if you're there; GIJN members will be there in force. Director Dave Kaplan will moderate an international networking panel with colleagues from ANCIR, ARIJ, Code for Africa, Connectas, and OCCRP. GIJN is also co-hosting the International Lunch with the Investigative Reporting Workshop.
