With support from the Swedish Institute, Fojo and the Eye of Corruption Sweden are working together to improve investigative journalism focusing on trans-border corruption in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
The second phase of the Eye of Corruption Global Network project (2016-2017) is implemented with our partner Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism (ARIJ) and leading members from the Eye of Corruption Sweden. The aims are to strengthen anti-corruption networks, to connect investigative journalists in the region with investigative reporters in Sweden, and to push for greater participation byfemale investigative journalists in the MENA-region.
Activities to date include educational webinars with selected investigative journalists from nine MENA countries (Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Syria, Tunisia, Palestine and Yemen), network gatherings/workshops and special investigations in the MENA-region. The project also contains a strong learning/mentoring component. Investigative journalists from Eye of Corruption Sweden and the MENA-region work and learn together, share information and develop knowledge, tools and skills to uncover corruption.
