Editor’s Note: Encyclo has not been regularly updated since August 2014, so information posted here is likely to be out of date and may be no longer accurate. It’s best used as a snapshot of the media landscape at that point in time.

The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) is a global network of investigative news organizations spanning 60 countries with more than 160 members.

Their aim is to facilitate the production of cross-national, investigative reporting by forming teams of two or more member reporters. The ICIJ is a project of the Center for Public Integrity.

It was founded in 1997 with the aim of bolstering available resources for reporters around the world who wanted to pursue stories beyond their own countries on topics including, “polluting industries, transnational crime networks, rogue states, and the actions of powerful figures in business and government.” The ICIJ partners with publishers to distribute the work of its members, which has been published in over a dozen different languages.

The ICIJ currently employs a staff of four; Gerard Ryle is its director. It’s advisory board includes many esteemed journalists including Bill Kovach and Rosental Alves. It is a nonprofit organization that receives funding from a number of philanthropic institutions.
