Investigative Journalism: Invaluable but Underfunded

ICFJ’s Patrick Butler led a fascinating session on the future of investigative journalism at Global Forum for Media Development’s major gathering in Indonesia this week. The importance of collaboration in an era of scarce funding and unprecedented dangers was a key topic. Panelists included Knight International Journalism Award Winner Miranda Patrucic, who is Regional Editor at the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), among other leaders in the field. In a piece for Jakarta Post, Devina Heriyanto captured the major trends.
