Each year we depend on the generosity and support of media partners, IJ supporters, media outlets, foundations, law firms, banks, and corporations to organise the ARIJ Forum. This event is central to ARIJ’s mission to train and equip journalists to become society’s “watchdogs” in favour of democracy, transparency and the rule of law.
The ARIJ Forum provides a great recruiting opportunity for major sponsors. Sponsor support helps us keep registration fees low, ensuring that attendance remains robust, and travel budgets lean. For more information, please contact ARIJ’s Business Development Specialist Yazan Abu Al Rous at:

Our sponsors and partners are a central part of our annual Forum for the following reasons:
Media around the world face declining revenue even as they struggle to embrace new tools and technologies for disseminating information to the public.
“Good journalism practices” end up by the wayside when scores of journalists are laid off due to worsening economics in the media industry. Your company can help by supporting the training of Entrepreneurial Investigative Journalists.
This training is about how to develop multiple sources of revenue for independent media practitioners. It’s also about using new professional tools in a fast-changing sector. Supporting independent media accelerates the pace towards democracy by providing a “voice to the voiceless”, allowing people to make fact-based decisions and hold leaders accountable.
