Investigative Journalism Workshop

Back to Programme

Investigative Journalism has been around for a long time, but in recent years, more agencies are using these methods to uncover important stories. The Panama Papers, as an example, exposed how the wealthy people all over the world evaded taxes. As information and technology developed, finding information has become easier. Everywhere there are journalists doing investigative reporting, such as the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists in the states, WeReport in Taiwan, Fact Wire in Hong Kong, etcetera. The local Mingpao and South China Morning Post partner with ICIJ, and they often publish investigative reporting stories.  

What are the features of Investigative Journalism? What are the qualities that investigative journalists need to possess? Visible Record invited experienced journalist Leila Chan and veteran documentary director Kevin H.J. Lee to share their experience and elaborate on the methods of Investigative Journalism.
