ARIJ’S 13TH ANNUAL FORUM
04/12/2020 - 06/12/2020
The ARIJ (Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism) annual forum is the Arab world’s biggest gathering for investigative journalists and supporters of independent media. The 2020 Forum is held under the theme: “Connecting the World”. As a result of COVID-19 restrictions, ARIJ’s 2020 Forum (#ARIJ2020) will be the organisation’s first ever fully virtual event.
#ARIJ2020 will feature over 1000 participants from more than 30 countries. The forum will take place from December 4-6.
The ARIJ Forum is a chance to network and share knowledge with leaders of Arab and global investigative journalism movements; and is an annual event to boost reporting skills, learn new tools, and get acquainted with the latest trends in investigative reporting. There are also opportunities to network with TV broadcasters, technology companies, and universities from around the globe. Journalists will learn how to counter the legal, political, professional, economic, and societal challenges hindering the role of the “Fourth Estate” in ensuring accountability. ARIJ’s Forum is a golden opportunity to train and equip journalists to serve as society’s watchdogs in favour of democracy, transparency and the rule of law in one of the world’s most autocratic regions. It also gives Arab media lecturers and media students a chance to interact with professionals.
