GIJN Masterclass: What Is Washington Doing in Your Country?

Read this article in


The US government engages with virtually every country in the world and in multiple ways. These can include Presidential and Congressional activity, foreign assistance, criminal investigations, public and private financial transactions, lobbying, arms sales — and much more. 

In this online Masterclass, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Martha Mendoza is in conversation with GIJN’s David Kaplan. Mendoza will offer hands-on training to accompany her popular GIJN tipsheet, Investigating US Influence Around the World, designed to help journalists outside the US understand how their countries are impacted by Washington — and how to report it more effectively. 

Martha Mendoza is a two-time Pulitzer prize-winning reporter with the Associated Press. She currently writes breaking news, enterprise, and investigative stories from Silicon Valley in California. She was part of a team that revealed forced labor in the fishing industry in Southeast Asia in 2015, an exposé that helped to free 2,000 slaves.

The moderator is David E. Kaplan, executive director of the Global Investigative Journalism Network. Kaplan worked as an investigative journalist for more than 35 years, reported from two dozen countries, and won or shared more than 25 awards.
