Our eyes and ears around the world: investigative journalism, cross-border crime, corruption, and accountability (Free public event, Sydney)

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Investigative and public-service journalism shine a light on the world’s dark corners. And in today’s globally connected world, leaked documents and data can be shared and analysed by reporters and citizen journalists anywhere. Major investigations into finance and corruption like the Panama Papers highlight the growing chasm between the world's elite and everyone else, and the role governments have played in creating it. Led by Gerard Ryle, who helped coordinate the reporting of the Panama Papers, our panel of journalists discuss the role for media and storytellers in holding the powerful to account and looking out for the most vulnerable among us. Open to the public as part of the University of Sydney's Sydney Ideas talk series. 

Register for this event via the University of Sydney 

The Walkley Foundation Australia-Arab International Journalism Speaker Program is supported by the Australian Government through the Council for Australian-Arab Relations (CAAR) of the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade.
