Eight Latin American journalists are among the 25 newest members of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), the transnational investigative network behind the Panama Papers investigation.
“Our 25 new members are leaders in the field of investigative journalism in their own countries,” Emilia Díaz Struck, ICIJ research editor and Latin America coordinator, told the Knight Center. “They have conducted journalistic investigations, including projects like the Panama Papers, with great courage and as great team players.”
The 25 journalists, which represent 20 different countries, were welcomed June 28 in one of ICIJ’s biggest expansions in recent years. With this addition, the consortium is now 200 journalists strong.
