IRIN official opening in Geneva

IRIN official opening in Geneva

After nearly 20 years as part of the United Nations, IRIN spun-off to become an independent media organization in January 2015. In 2016, IRIN was reborn as a Swiss association, and is on 12 October officially opening its new Geneva headquarters in an inaugural ceremony.

With its network of journalists in 70 crisis zones around the world, IRIN is a key source for original on-the ground reporting and expert analysis of humanitarian crises and the trends that shape them. Its award winning frontline journalism covers parts of the world often under-reported, misunderstood or ignored. With a core audience of aid workers, government officials, analysts and UN decision-makers, IRIN drives more effective and accountable humanitarian action. Its work is syndicated, republished and cited by news outlets and journals from around the world. IRIN recently launched a new investigative unit, aimed at increasing transparency and accountability in the humanitarian sector.
