Mongolia is a part of “Uncovered Asia”. Ulaanbaatar is the capital of this hidden treasure for investigative reporters and our journalists are interested in uncovering injustice, misconduct and inequality in society.
We are welcoming you to Ulaanbaatar for the first ever international conference on the investigative journalism in Mongolia. We invite you to discover and share your ideas to developing professional journalism.
The Press institute of Mongolia is the leading Mongolian NGO with the mission to support the development of independent professional journalism in Mongolia. For this goal we enhance capacity building for journalists and networking possibilities domestically and internationally.
In 2015, the Press Institute trainers participated in the 9th Global investigative journalism conference in Lillehammer, Norway. After coming back the team organized three roundtable discussions among professionals and journalists to share their experiences. As a result, 19 mainstream media outlets produced stories about global investigative journalism trends and Mongolian situations. Additionally, a network of journalism educators and journalists interested in investigative reporting was established to share knowledge and experiences and collaborate on promoting investigative journalism in Mongolia.
Therefore, together with our partners, such as DW Akademie, Global Investigative Journalists Network and Mongol TV, we are introducing an initiative to establish an independent Centre for Investigative Journalism in Mongolia. With our mission we are launching our 3 week high level professional training course on investigative reporting, supported by DW Akademie. Since 2015, DW Akademie’s international experts Mark Lee Hunter, Marcus Lindemann and Prof. Michael Haller have jointly developed a curriculum for investigative journalism with PIM and trained a group of PIM teachers. This group of teachers will offer the course for investigative journalism for the first time in summer 2017.
We are organizing this Investigative Journalism Dialogue, the first international conference in Mongolia, to launch the independent investigative center and its website. Over this two day event you will hear from investigative journalism experts. These presenters include: adjunct professor and senior research fellow Dr. Mark Lee Hunter from the INSEAD Social Innovation Centre and journalism and research trainer Marcus Lindemann from Germany on behalf of DW Akademie, as well as David Kaplan, Executive Director of the Global Investigative Journalism Network and other guests.
The aim of this conference is to engage not only Mongolian media but also our international guests to improve professional investigative professional journalism here and in similar developing countries.
Core aims of the conference:
We hope you enjoy this event.
