Illicit Finance Journalism Programme

This course is aimed at practicing journalists who are keen to investigate tax avoidance, corruption, money laundering and asset recovery.
City University London
12 May 2015 - 15 May 2015
The Tax Justice Network and the Centre of Investigative Journalism are pleased to hold the fifth training workshop at City University London.  #ifjp

Course Outline

The course offers journalists - primarily from the developing world - training in uncovering illicit finance, financial secrecy and asset recovery. We bring together journalists from countries where often corruption, tax havens and harmful tax practices stall development and entrench poverty.
To develop closer links between journalists working on these issues throughout the world, there are also limited places available to paying journalists from the UK, Europe and North America. The course fee for journalists from UK and Europe is £650. Course fees go towards subsidising travel and accommodation costs for other participants.

Class instructions will take place in English.
