About CIJ

The Centre for Investigative Journalism (CIJ) is a charity that champions critical, in-depth reporting and the defence of the public interest. It came into being in 2003 to address a deepening crisis in investigative reporting.

The primary mission of the CIJ is to provide a centre of excellence for the training of journalists; to raise the standard of investigative reporting to a high professional level.
