"Asia Is Ready!" -- Manila Marks New Era for Asian Muckraking

Journalists from 33 countries streamed into Manila last month for Uncovering Asia: The First Asian Investigative Journalism Conference. The organizers -- GIJN, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS), and the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism (PCIJ) -- hoped for at least 150 people, but more than 300 came, full of energy, from Japan to Mongolia. As a result, new networks and nonprofits of investigative journalists are forming in Southeast Asia and South Asia. As PCIJ director Malou Mangahas told attendees, "Asia is ready!" Big thanks to KAS, the Open Society Foundations, and our many other supporters who made this happen.

Impact Project Making the Case for Investigative Reporting

GIJN's Investigative Impact -- on the impact of investigative journalism -- is getting wide use by journalists, donors, and others since its release last month. The multimedia project features videos, data, and case studies from 10 countries. As Investigative News Network's Kevin Davis tweeted to his members, "@GIJN has produced a fantastic fundraising tool for you." The project has been viewed by people in 124 countries and we've showcased the main video at events in New York City (Investigathon), Johannesburg (Power Reporting), and Manila (Uncovering Asia). Stay tuned: we're rolling out the final report early next year.
