Covering corruption workshop slated to open IPI world congress

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.
