Investigative Journalism in High-Risk Situations

During the two-day workshops in Medellín and Cali, InquireFirst Executive Director Lynne Walker will conduct interactive sessions with journalists who cover corruption, organized crime and public safety issues.  Walker will focus her workshop sessions on journalist safety as well as effective interview techniques and narrative writing.

Some 30 journalists will attend each of the workshops, with additional journalists from prominent media organizations joining the group for receptions at the close of each of the programs.

Walker will also meet with directors of Colombia’s largest media organizations, as well as with directors of journalism programs at top universities.
