The European Investigative Journalism Conference

Cooperation Sprung Up at the EIJC 2018

Great journalism grows out of conference networking! At the 2018 EIJC Conference, German reporter Hans-Martin Tillack from Stern met Dutch reporter Ludo Hekman from Lighthouse Reports on a panel. Both had researched how arms from their native countries turned up in Middle Eastern armed conflicts.

A cooperation began and now also involves British Bellingcat, German ARD and Deutsche Welle. Read Hans-Martin Tillacks recent article (in German) and follow the work on Twitter #GermanArms.
