ARIJ’s Annual Forum is the only regional gathering for investigative journalists and editors in the Middle East and North Africa. Attendees trade tips and skills with award-winning media trainers and have the rare chance to be coached by the leaders of the global investigative journalism movement.
The Forum is the centerpiece of our mission at Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism (ARIJ) to train and equip journalists to serve as society’s “watchdogs” in favour of democracy, transparency and the rule of law. The conference also provides a great recruiting opportunity for major sponsors.
More than 400 people will meet at the Kempinski Hotel, Amman, Jordan, from the 22nd- 24th November 2019. The conference provides opportunities to boost reporting skills, learn new tools, get acquainted with the latest trends in investigative reporting and network with TV broadcasters, technology companies, and universities from around the globe. Journalists will be learning how to counter the legal, political, professional, economic, and societal challenges hindering the role of the “Fourth Estate” in ensuring accountability.
