Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Investigative journalism is key to holding power to account and exposes systemic failings. Cross-border investigative projects have raised public awareness and created civil society momentum where governments were pressured to act. This session aims to highlight the power of partnerships between journalists and civil society activists, and also consider how this model can be replicated in developing countries. It will highlight progress made and lessons learned since the Global Anti-Corruption Consortium (GACC) was launched at the last OGP Global Summit in 2016 in Paris. Spearheaded by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) together with Transparency International (TI)—the GACC has made significant contributions. Participants will highlight common challenges and reforms needed to address closing space for journalists and civil society as well as ways to address challenges inherent to journalists and advocates working together.
