Illicit Finance Journalism Programme
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 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
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.
#ifjp (Illicit Finance Journalism Programme)
The bursary for journalists from the developing world will cover visa
fees, travel, accommodation and per diems for food and travel in London.
Due to the limited number of bursaries, applicants will be selected
based on their track record in investigative journalism. But you do not
need to have a financial background to apply. Class instructions will
take place in English.
