The author reflects on his involvement with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ). According to the author, the major obstacle to fully realizing the consortium's collaborative mission is the absence of regular personal contact among members. He notes that consolidating a network of professional journalists in different countries to collaborate on specific projects is an ongoing effort. He points out that investigative journalism still lacks support and funding from major media organizations throughout the world.
