Latin America: Investigative Journalism
USAGM’s Business Development and the University Francisco de Paula Santander in Colombia organized and coordinated a conversation with students, professors, and professionals to understand the importance of investigative journalism in today’s society.
During the two-hour virtual conference, experts debated about how investigative journalists professionals have the responsibility of ensuring that those in power are not corrupt and do not abuse their power.
Participants understood techniques to gather and organize evidence and information, how to follow security measures during investigative work, and how to protect their digital information. The conference was held virtually on April 27th, 2021, in collaboration with the School of Communications at the Universidad de Pamplona and promoted by Norte Stereo, a VOA radio affiliate.
