For Journalists

In a world increasingly focused on access to natural resources, Global Witness has established itself as the leading voice on the links between resource wealth, corruption and conflict in the planet’s most troubled areas.

Our investigations are internationally respected by governments and policy-makers, and regularly feature in the media. We are constantly seeking new ways to communicate our message and bring about change that sees resource wealth drive development rather than fuel conflict and corruption.

Global Witness has a team of talented spokespeople with extensive media experience and expertise across all our campaigns.
