Spotlight's Robinson to Keynote Asia Conference

We're excited to officially open registration for Uncovering Asia -- the second Asian Investigative Journalism Conference in extraordinary Kathmandu, Nepal, on Sept. 23-25. Our keynote speaker will be Walter "Robby" Robinson, who led the Boston Globe Spotlight team’s Pulitzer Prize winning investigation into the Catholic Church sex abuse scandal. We've got a great hotel, cheap rates, a low registration fee, fellowships, and more, so come join GIJN and co-hosts the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung and Nepal Centre for Investigative Journalism. 

Asia Conference Site Launches

For three days in Nepal we're bringing together Asia's best reporters, top data journalists, and media law and security experts for Uncovering Asia. In addition to Spotlight's Robinson (played by Michael Keaton in the movie) we'll have world-class speakers at 50 sessions, including panels on digging out hidden facts online, climate change, disaster reporting, how to fund your project; data journalism workshops by the best in the business; and much more. You can follow the conference at #IJAsia16.

Uncovering Asia Fellowships

Need help to join us in Nepal? Professional journalists in developing and transitioning countries in Asia can apply for a fellowship to attend the Asian Investigative Journalism Conference. More than 30 fellowships are available both for established and young promising journalists. Competition is keen so you need to convince us that you'll make great use of the training IJAsia16 offers. Read more here. 

Investigative Journalism: A Huge Return on Investment

Does Investigative journalism pay? You bet it does. Our stories have led to billions of dollars in fines and back taxes to Western governments. Why, then, do officials give so little in media development funds to investigative reporters in developing countries?
