The Bureau of Investigative Journalism is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to bolster original journalism by producing high-quality investigations for press and broadcast media. The first of its kind in the UK, it was established in April 2010. Since then, it has had numerous front-pages and produced award winning radio and radio documentaries.
Highlights to date include:
A collaboration with Wikileaks in its Iraq War Logs expose – winning an Amnesty Award and gaining international headlines.
A 9 month investigation into EU structural funds that was the subject of lengthy reports in the Financial Times, the BBC’s File on Four and Al Jazeera’s People and Power. Our work won a Thomson Reuters Reporting Europe Award.
The largest ever analysis of public pay in the UK, turned into a Panorama and one of the most visited BBC web pages of 2010.
The Bureau works in collaboration with other news groups to get its investigations published and distributed.
