Columbia lecturer Anya Schiffrin will discuss her research on how investigative and campaigning journalism has evolved around the world, and present some of the great journalism campaigns of the last 100 years. Topics include the role that media plays in promoting economic growth, good governance and government accountability, and the conditions under which journalists can be effective as watchdogs. Q&A to follow.

Schiffrin spent 10 years working overseas as a journalist in Europe and Asia (including stints as Dow Jones newswires bureau chief in Amsterdam and Hanoi) and was a Knight-Bagehot Fellow at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism in 1999-2000.
