To better prepare journalists, bloggers, and media professionals to develop in-depth publications on Illicit Financial Flows from Africa, TrustAfrica organised a two-day training workshop in Dakar, Senegal, on this subject matter. The second day of the training was marked by a High-level Public Roundtable, where the twenty-five participants from different parts of the continent had fruitful discussions with experts, policymakers, academics and activists in the field. The link to the roundtable can be found here.
At the end of the workshop, journalists, bloggers and media practitioners were unanimous in their resolve to stop Illicit Financial Flows on the continent by setting up a Network of African Journalists Working Against Illicit Financial Flows. They thereafter issued this declaration calling for other journalists to join the Network.
