New technologies and globalization have forever changed
journalism. Getting to the
bottom of a story, exposing
corruption, human rights abuses, and serving as a "watch dog" for the
general public still remains as risky -some say riskier- today as itever in
many countries.

Sheila Coronel, a leading figure in investigative journalism in
the Philippines and Asia,
has reported on the wind down of the Marcos regime in the Philippines including human rights
abuses, the growingdemocratic movement, and
the election of Corazon Aquino. Ms Coronel has written on major social issues,
the military, poverty and corruption. In1989, she and her colleagues founded
the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism (PCIJ). Under her
stewardship, the PCIJ became the premier investigative reporting institution in
the region. The PCIJ trains journalists in investigative skills, and has
provided an environment for in-depth, groundbreaking reporting.

Ms Coronel is the author and editor of more than a dozen books and
has received numerous awards and widespread recognition of her work. She
received her MA in political sociology from the London School.
