About ARIJ Annual Forum 2018
ARIJ’s Annual Forum is the only regional gathering for investigative journalists and editors in the Middle East and North Africa. Attendees trade tips and skills with award-winning media trainers and have the rare chance to be coached by the leaders of the global investigative journalism movement. This year’s Forum topic will tackle one of the major issues facing journalists across the globe: “The future of Investigative Reporting: Trends, Tools and Technologies”. The Forum is the centerpiece of our mission at Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism (ARIJ) to train and equip journalists to serve as society’s “watchdogs” in favour of democracy, transparency and the rule of law. The conference also provides a great recruiting opportunity for major sponsors. More than 400 people will meet at the Dead Sea, in Jordan, from November 30 to December 2nd, 2018, to boost reporting skills, learn new tools, get acquainted with the latest trends in investigative reporting, and to network with TV broadcasters, technology companies, and universities from around the globe. Journalists will be learning how to counter the legal, political, professional, economic, and societal challenges hindering the role of the “Fourth Estate” in ensuring accountability.

Rana Sabbagh deserves praise from us all for building ARIJ, for the exceptional diligence the ARIJ team brings to both producing investigative reports and to training journalists in how to do the work, often in horribly oppressive and threatening circumstances. This was also a smoothly run conference.
My participation in the ARIJ meeting this year was heartwarming and brought tears into my eyes….it is really fantastic how you have managed to grow with this small organization that we started some twelve years ago. ARIJ is now a landmark in Arab journalism.
