From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Bureau for Investigative Journalism[1] is a British not-for-profit initiative backed by a number of journalists. It was set up with the aim to encourage independent serious investigations and to encourage a new generation of reporters. It will be based in London.[2]

The Bureau is likely to work out of City University, but is to remain independent editorially from that University and its backers.

One of the main co-founders is David Potter, who has invested £2 million into the Bureau.[3]

In September 2009 Iain Overton was appointed its first managing director.[4]

Media commentator Roy Greenslade reported that "The creation of the bureau stems from a belief that papers are either unable or unwilling to carry out investigative journalism."[5]
