Cross-Border Journalism: Europe and Beyond

    Monday 19 October 2015
    The Frontline Club, 13 Norfolk Place, London, W2 1QJ

    Event starts at 19:00 

    When money, politics, abuse of power and corruption reach across borders, transnational networks of journalists become key to an open, accountable and democratic society. Cross-border investigations such as Swiss Leaks and Tobacco Underground have caused public outcry, and in many instances have led to legislative changes and the prosecution of those under investigation.  

    This game-changing journalism model is increasingly facilitated by the rise of digital tools, access to international databases and the ability to bypass restrictive national freedom of information laws. However, cross-border collaboration is facing its own challenges, from funding opportunities to logistical issues and disparate journalistic cultures.  

    In an event in partnership with the Romanian Cultural Centre in London (RCC) and Frontline Club Bucharest, a panel of experts will be discussing what it takes to expose stories that spill across borders, as well as the potential obstacles and impact involved.

    This discussion will be moderated by Gavin MacFadyen, director of the Centre for Investigative Journalism.
