Investigate this!

The IMCK training space in Erbil has been filled with active print and online journalists for the past two days. They joined in on a workshop about illegal emigration and investigative journalism. After the training was opened by IMCK Director Julia Shaw, a representative from STATT – Goran Sabah – gave a presentation on illegal emigration.
Then, the attention of the participants went to international trainer Delwyn Swingewood. Swingewood is a course leader in newspaper journalism at the University of Central Lancashire in the UK.
The trainer took the participants through case studies and suggested areas for investigation. Some of the subjects discussed were setting up investigative stories, the definition of an investigative story, using the subject illegal emigration, how to use and in some cases protect sources, how to check facts and journalistic ethics.

After two days IMCK could hand out 17 certificates to the involved participants.
