Promoting Good Governance and Accountability in the U.S.: The Role of Journalists

June 6, 2018 - June 9, 2018

Investigative journalists, broadcasters, news editors, and media managers from Nigeria will explore the impact of U.S. news reporting on government accountability in this 10-day IVLP exchange. A visit to Cleveland will include discussions with print, broadcast, and television news editors and reporters focused on the media’s role as a “watchdog” in governance and society. Through the lens of the 2008 Cuyahoga County corruption scandal, visitors will gain an inside look at investigatory journalism in Northeast Ohio.

International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program

Each year, over 300 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.

By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
