How Armando.info’s Exiled Reporters Keep Reporting on Venezuela

Venezuelan investigative website Armando.info, which is a member of GIJN, is going through difficult times.

Investigative Journalism and the Crisis in Venezuela

Venezuela is currently in the midst of an economic, political and constitutional crisis. Amid widespread rationing, tensions between President Nicolás Maduro and members of the opposition continue to escalate. Ewald Scharfenberg, cofounder of GIJN member organization Armando.info, talks about the role investigative journalism plays in Venezuelan politics. Scharfenberg will be speaking at #GIJC17 in November in Johannesburg.
