Welcome to a very interesting discussion evening with cutting-edge journalists from Nepal. Investigative journalism is not very common in Nepal, where distances are ample, politics challenging and human rights not always respected.

The main speakers are Namrata Sharma, the chairperson of Centre for Investigative Journalism in Nepal and Shiva Gaunle, the editor of the same centre.

On Tuesday 27 March 17-19.30 hrs
Venue: Auditorium, Päivälehti Museum, Ludviginkatu 2-4, 00130 Helsinki

Previously, he was President of the Federation of Nepalese Journalists (FNJ). His earlier position as Editor at Himal Khabar Patrika weekly for over a decade gave him tremendous working knowledge in journalism. ”Though I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Law, later on, my passion for writing and interest in social, political and demographic issues led me to carry further in journalism”, he says.
