ARIJ’s Annual Forum #ARIJ19

ARIJ’s annual forum is the only regional gathering in the MENA region for investigative journalists and editors. Come and join around 500 Arab and international top investigative and data journalists from more than 37 countries, and benefit from over 40 edge-cutting panels and hands-on workshops. The forum is a chance to network with journalists who have been trained by ARIJ and produced hard-hitting investigations into the most interesting issues of our time, in the name of accountability and rule of law. This is an opportunity to share your skills with leaders of the global investigative journalism movement.

The forum is the centerpiece of our mission at Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism to train and equip journalists to serve as society’s “watchdogs” in favour of democracy, transparency and the rule of law. The conference provides a great recruiting opportunities for major sponsors. More than 500 people will meet in Amman, Jordan, from 22- 24 Nov., 2019, to boost reporting skills, learn new tools, get acquainted with the latest trends in investigative reporting. There are also opportunities to network with TV broadcasters, technology companies, and universities from around the globe. Journalists will learn how to counter the legal, political, professional, economic, and societal challenges hindering the role of the “Fourth Estate” in ensuring accountability.

The 2019 Forum is held under the theme: “Media in a Radicalized World”. The Forum is at the heart of ARIJ’s ongoing mission and vision to spread the hitherto unknown culture of “accountability journalism” among Arab journalists, editors, media professors and students in one of the world’s most autocratic regions.

The Forum also provides great recruiting opportunities for regional and international media delegates and tech companies.
