Strengthening Investigative Journalism on Corruption and Illicit Finance through Capacity Building and Awareness Raising in the Western Hemisphere

The program's goal is to improve the quality and quantity of investigative pieces exposing corruption and illicit finance, particularly as facilitators of transnational crime, in the Western Hemisphere.

The project also seeks to increase awareness among justice sector actors and journalists

of relevant information produced by each group (i.e.

law enforcement alerts, tips, or actionable reporting), and to identify and promote ways in which they might more effectively engage each other when possible.

Project Objectives:
Objective 1:
Improve the ability, including the capacity, of investigative journalists to expose corruption and related illicit financial activity, and increase journalists' awareness of law enforcement activities and what makes information actionable, to include skills in producing such information and in accessing publicly available investigative information.

Objective 2:
Increase justice sector awareness of the work of investigative journalists and their willingness to draw upon helpful information for operational leads in their own investigations, and build relationships between law enforcement and journalists, only it would be both possible and helpful in the countries selected.
