Not too long ago, investigative reporting was little known in the Asian media and a conference such as this would have drawn just a few dozen devotees. Today we are in a midst of an investigative ferment. Despite intimidation and violence, Asian journalists are digging into corruption, the environment, food and product safety, trafficking, and human rights abuses as never before. New freedoms, new technologies, new markets and new laws are helping make this happen. 

Journalist Sheila Coronel -- co-founder of the pioneering Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism and now academic dean at the prestigious Columbia Journalism School -- looks to the past as well as the future, and sees that Asia's journalists are also drawing from the well of their own traditions as they move into the future. She finds them building an edifice of accountability reporting on the foundations of their own histories and cultures, and mobilizing citizens, helping them keep their watchful eyes on power.
