On 1 November 2022, 19 African investigative journalists from 14 countries came together to form the Network of African Investigative Reporters and Editors (NAIRE). Their goal was to “establish in the investigative journalism profession in Africa a more systemic focus, moving away from (the focus on) corrupt events and corrupt individuals towards questioning the institutions of the African (postcolonial) state.”

On the first anniversary of NAIRE’s launch, we’ll host a seminar with one of its founders, Ghanaian investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas. Anas will discuss NAIRE’s mission and the opportunities it opens for African investigative journalists and the profession as a whole.

Anas is a Ghanaian investigative journalist who uses his anonymity as a tool in his investigative journalism work. He focuses on issues of human rights and anti-corruption in Ghana and sub-Saharan Africa. In December 2015 Foreign Policy magazine named Anas one of 2015’s leading global thinkers.
