IN THE LAST 25 years, the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism has grown – to a full complement of 13 people.
It really is a small organization for one that has generated such an impact on Philippine politics and media in the last quarter century.
The PCIJ is made up of four desks, each one handling a specific task that coincides with the Center’s vision of promoting investigative journalism. These are the Investigative Reporting, Training, Research, and Multimedia Desks.
Of these, it is the Research Desk that is the center of gravity of the PCIJ. Since investigative reporting is naturally driven by data, it is the Research Desk that best represents the discipline and practice that drives the PCIJ.
