Global Investigative Journalism Network
The Global Investigative Journalism Network is the world’s premier international association of investigative reporting organizations. GIJN’s membership includes more than 100 nonprofits and NGOs in 45 countries. Its primary missions are expanding and supporting quality investigative journalism worldwide. This is done through sponsoring global and regional conferences, including the every-two-year Global Investigative Journalism Conference. GIJN also does training, links journalists together worldwide, and promotes best practices in investigative and data journalism. GIJN was founded in 2003 when more than 300 journalists gathered for the second Global Investigative Journalism Conference in Copenhagen. Membership is open to non-profit media organizations that support investigative or data journalism.
The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) supports democratic development, and provides a substantial contribution to international cooperation and understanding. With more than 200 projects in the world it is Germany’s largest political foundation. The Media Programme Asia of KAS strengthens dialogue between media and politics. It monitors and highlights current media trends through publications and events, and provides education for Asian journalists for a free, ethical, and responsible press. Among its partners are the Asia News Network (ANN), a syndication network of 22 national newspapers from 20 Asian countries with a daily readership of 50 million, and he Konrad Adenauer Asian Center for Journalism (ACFJ), which has offered degree and non-degree distance learning programs to the emerging elite of journalists in Asia for 15 years.
Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism
The Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism is an independent, nonprofit media agency that specializes in investigative reporting. It was founded in 1989 by nine Filipino journalists who realized, from their years on the beat and at the news desk, the need for newspapers and broadcast agencies to go beyond day–to–day reportage. Since its founding, PCIJ has published over 1,000 investigative reports and over 1,000 other stories in major Philippine media, produced five full–length documentaries, scores of TV documentaries, and over two dozen books. The PCIJ also organizes training seminars for news organizations across Southeast Asia. The PCIJ has won over 150 major awards, including nine National Book Awards.
