Investigative Journalism: A New Global Power?

May 30 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm BST

From Latin-America to Nigeria, from India to Poland, courageous men and women are exposing problems and holding the powerful to account.

The Internet and enhanced tools of digitalisation and communication have given opportunities to investigative journalists undreamed of even 10 years ago, and globalisation has connected the newshounds and whistleblowers of every continent. From Latin-America to Nigeria, from India to Poland, courageous men and women are exposing problems and holding the powerful to account and in some cases, collaborating across continents. Governments, corporations and defence establishments need to take it into account. Should we recognise it as a new global power?

A lecture by Hugo De Burgh
