New members for ICIJ’s Network Committee

Four new members have joined the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists’ network committee which searches for the world’s best investigative journalists for membership of the consortium.

The new members are Alia Ibrahim from Lebanon, Emmanuel Dogbevi (Ghana), Francisca Skoknic (Chile) and Yongjin Kim (South Korea).

In addition, Frédéric Zalac (Canada) becomes the network committee’s vice chair, along with Bill Birnbauer (Australia) and chair, Minna Knus-Galán, (Finland).

Knus-Galán welcomed the new members and thanked the departing members, Titus Plattner (Switzerland), Wahyu Dhyatmika (Indonesia), and Mónica Almeida (Ecuador).

“The ICIJ’s ground-breaking journalism relies on journalists who can work with colleagues from around the world, share their findings, and adhere to the ICIJ’s deadlines and policies. The network committee sifts through applications to join ICIJ by journalists as well as relying on its members to suggest good fits. We are constantly on the lookout for members, especially in underrepresented countries.’’

Under the network committee’s charter,  ICIJ members serve a term of three years on the network committee and select new members subject to the approval of the ICIJ director. The committee also deals with disciplinary issues and other matters as requested by the director.
