About FAIR

The Forum for African Investigative Reporters (FAIR) is a professional association of investigative journalists in Africa. Its mission is to enhance, deepen and build investigative journalism as a profession throughout the continent.

FAIR was established on the basis of the awareness that, firstly, investigative journalists have a vital role to play to enhance the African public’s right to information about all matters of social development and social justice; and, secondly, that African investigative journalists at present face many obstacles, ranging from lack of encouragement and low pay to life-threatening situations. FAIR was established to help investigative journalists support each other in  overcoming these obstacles.   FAIR works to achieve its goals through:

  • professional support for African investigative journalists;
  • provision of resources and networking services for African investigative journalists;
  • facilitating cross-border partnerships in investigative stories throughout Africa;
  • facilitating access to information on Africa archived internationally, as well as internationally based colleagues
  • initiatives to support aspiring African investigative journalists through training and placement
  • support for, and promotion of, methods of best practice in African investigative journalism

FAIR is a Public Benefit Organisation registered in South Africa (PBO: 930016519) with offices at 4th floor Mentone Centre, 1 Park Road, Richmond, Auckland Park, 2092.
