Opportunity for Journalists: Training on illicit finance reporting

The Thomson Reuters Foundation, in partnership with the African Centre for Media Excellence (ACME) and others, is looking for journalists based anywhere in Africa to take part in a long-term scheme that will develop their ability to report on illicit finance and tax abuse.

Selected journalists will participate in two intensive workshops covering illicit finance, reporting on companies, accounts and budgets and investigative techniques. They will then join a regional team of reporters focusing on illicit finance.

The 2015 workshops are scheduled for June and September and will take place in a variety of locations including Uganda, South Africa, Senegal and Tunisia.

Business journalists with at least two years of experience can apply for this program.

The deadline to apply is April 5.
