In an edited extract from the book “Global Teamwork: The Rise of Collaboration in Investigative Journalism,” GIJN’s Program Director Anne Koch talks about the successes — and shortcomings — of the collaboration between Transparency International and the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project.
David E. Kaplan, Executive Director. David Kaplan has worked as an investigative journalist for more than 35 years, reported from two dozen countries and won or shared more than 25 awards. He has managed nonprofit newsrooms, investigative teams and numerous cross-border projects. During the 1980s and early 1990s, at the original Center for Investigative Reporting in San Francisco, he and his colleagues developed the model of a nonprofit investigative news enterprise. At its peak, CIR derived 40 percent of its income from commercial revenue, drawing from television news retainers, documentary production, publishing contracts and syndication. In 2008, Kaplan became editorial director of the Center for Public Integrity.
