Talks by investigative journalists and investigators

We will be bringing some of the best investigative journalists and investigators to #CIJSummer 2023.

We are delighted to have ‘Fisayo Soyombo, a Nigerian investigative journalist and editor best known for his undercover investigations, as one of this year’s keynote speakers.

Former tax lawyer and founder of Tax Policy Associates Dan Neidle will talk about his investigation into the former Tory Chairman Nadhim Zahawi’s tax affairs.

Jenna Corderoy, an investigative journalist who specialises in the Freedom of Information Act investigations, will show how and why the FOI Act is a vital tool in holding the powerful to account. She will also talk about how she fell into this specialism and what journalists can do to protect the legislation.

Our very own Adeolu Adekola, head of the CIJ Open Climate Reporting Initiative (OCRI), will host talks with some of the leading climate and environment journalists from all over the world.

We will be updating our speakers list regularly. Watch this space.
