We are ready to cooperate with non-profit organizations, NGOs, as well as with various relevant institutions that can facilitate and support investigative journalism. We do not cooperate with political parties, police or government officials.

Membership applications must be approved by the Association’s Board. Association Board meets twice a year, thus review of your application might take several months. If you think you or your organization can be eligible to apply for membership, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page.

At this time, membership of the Association comprises more than 100 participants and 70 organizations from 15 countries.

When applying, you must provide evidence and facts of your involvement and journalistic investigative activities (investigation results, reports, publications). To apply on behalf of an organization, a list of documents should be submitted (please contact us to find out details before submitting the application).

Association’s Membership provides an opportunity to develop and maintain the highest level of professionalism in journalism, as well as accuracy, independence, transparency and fairness. Members and organizations that are not able to meet and maintain high standards of journalism and nonprofit management are subject to exclusion from the Association.
