A major challenge for Pacific Island nations is how to address corruption, lack of accountability and transparency and mismanagement of public and private resources.
Now more than ever before, communities across the Pacific rely heavily on media outlets and journalists to provide accurate and incisive reporting on these issues to hold its governments, public officials and the private sectors to account.
Who is reporting on these issues? How is it being done? What are the major challenges for media and journalist in this area? What are the safeguards that protect these processes, informants and journalists?
Come along to the Transparency International New Zealand and the Pacific Media Centre collaboration and join us to discuss these pressing questions.
