Arkhangelsk journalists are ready to join to the international investigative network

May 28, 2010


On 20-21, May 2010 in Arkhangelsk was held a seminar on investigative reporting. 18 participants from different media and students took part in the seminar. All of them are full of strength to join to the international journalism investigative network.

 

 

 

Majority of the journalists said that taking part in the seminar brought them valuable experience, which structuralized their present skills and helped to get to know more about methods and practical skills of carrying out journalism investigation. According to Elena Miakshina, the editor of Sozvezdie Review magazine, the seminar showed the possibility of carrying out scaled investigations involving readers.

Other participants found out interesting examples of carrying out investigations concerning everyday life of people. As an example, Ekaterina Kurzeneva gives the following conclusion:

– I understood that not all investigations are to be global or risky (it is necessary for the journalist to posses juridical skills, we have also talked about it on the seminar). Great number of topics is laying on the surface, our life gives them to us. The work of the journalist is not to pass by.

Beginning of big international project

Course leaders Henrik Kaufholtz (  SCOOP, Denmark) and Oleg Khomenok (national coordinator SCOOP, Ukraine) told about   experience of   foreign colleagues, held some  workshops, using  on-line journalistic.

– The seminar in Arkhangelsk may turn to be a part of big project for improving Russian journalists investigative methods, said Henrik Kaufholtz.
He told about the project which SCOOP is going to bring to life in Russia with a support of different funds and institutes.

– This must be two or three year studying programme. The main aim is to help Russian journalists to become an integral part of the international journalism investigative network, the important part of the media work.

Most of participants wish to hold such seminars more often and invite Russian trainers  and lawyers.
