The training, which will be conducted in English, will expand journalists' ability to use digital tools and reporting methods to identify and track financial fraud across borders.
International airfare, lodging and per diem will be covered by ICFJ for journalists living outside Barbados. Participants will have the opportunity to work on their investigative proposal with OCCRP and Connectas editors and to request funding to complete it.
