On the Eve of the Annual Conference

October 13th, 2014


We’ve arrived at the eve of the our annual conference, co-hosted this year in Lima, Peru by FTC member Latin American Network on Debt, Development, and Rights (LATINDAD). While the main conference begins tomorrow, journalists, civil society leaders and researchers are already hard at work. The week began today with a journalist training that included presentations from renowned investigative journalists like Hernán CapielloÁngel Páez, and former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson. The training brought together more than 15 journalists from 10 different countries in Latin America to discuss how investigative journalism can be a tool for uncovering illicit financial flows. Alongside the journalist training, members of civil society gathered to discuss illicit flows, corruption, and financial transparency.

As today’s sessions have come to a close, we’re looking forward to the launch of the conference tomorrow. You can view the full agenda for the event here. If you’re unable to join us in Lima, you don’t have to be left out. Follow along and add to the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #FTC2014Lima and by following @FinTrCo.
