Enhancing Convergence of the Media and Civil Society in Collaborative Efforts towards Combating IFFs from Africa

TrustAfrica is currently hosting a ‘Meeting on Enhancing convergence of the media and civil society in collaborative efforts towards combatting Illicit Financial Flows from Africa’, taking place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on 28th and 29th June 2018, and in collaboration with Thomson Reuters Foundation (TRF) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA).  

The main goal of the meeting is to create space for African journalists reporting on IFFs to meet with civil society advocacy organizations and other relevant stakeholders with the aim to strategize on how media reporting on IFFs can best translate into an effective resource for civil society advocacy efforts and sustained traction for policy change. 

TrustAfrica has worked in partnership with the Thomson Reuters Foundation as part of the Wealth of Nations initiative, to develop a robust, well trained media, independent media able to investigate and report on illicit financial flows from Africa. The meeting is therefore part of that initiative to work with leading journalists and media organizations across the continent to build capacity to investigate IFFs and expose those responsible. The initiative has contributed to a growing cross-border network of specialized reporters and “flagship” newsrooms covering illicit financial flows. The Wealth of Nations programme is supported by Norway’s development agency, Norad.
