BIRN Programme Manager and investigative reporter Jelena Cosic gave a presentation to students at the American University in Washington DC on October 9 about BIRN’s work and achievements.

During her visit to Washington as part of the Digital Communication Network programme, Cosic was invited by renowned investigative reporter Chuck Lewis and the managing editor of the Investigative Reporting Workshop, Lynne Perri, to talk about BIRN’s investigative projects.

Cosic presented investigations from the Making a Killing series, and spoke about the importance of investigative reporting and BIRN’s work in general.

She held two sessions for students from two different classes, the history of investigative reporting led by Perri and international investigative reporting led by Lewis.

The Digital Communication Network exchange programme is sponsored by the US Department of State and coordinated by World Learning. Cosic is the Serbian representative among 16 media professionals from Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
