Global Investigative Journalism Network
Investigative journalists work for months at a time to develop stories which expose corruption and fraud which weaken the rule of law. Transparency of laws, access to remedy and independence of the judiciary ensures progress for all, and the work of the Global Investigative Journalism Network (GIJN) helps to achieve this. GIJN is an international association of non-profit organizations to support, promote and produce investigative journalism. Investigative journalists often have to sift through, and analyze, enormous amounts of information and data to expose potential abuses. Having access to trusted and quality information to do their jobs is essential.
LexisNexis Rule of Law Foundation has worked with GIJN to examine the needs of investigative journalists and form a partnership to provide information for use in these journalistic endeavors at a greatly reduced cost. The access to this type of information will further allow journalists to map out and challenge the wrongs and so enhance the rule of law.
