Josy Joseph
Investigative Journalist and Author

Josy Joseph is an Indian investigative journalist and author. He is the founder of Confluence Media, a platform-agnostic investigative journalism outfit.

Joseph has been previously Editor-Special Projects for the Times of India, an Associate Editor with the DNA newspaper, and has also been with Rediff.com, The Asian Age, Mid-Day, and the Blitz. His stories have fostered greater public debate and have contributed to significant policy and systemic changes. Joseph's reporting has resulted in several high-profile officials being forced out of office, triggering the arrest of many others as well as federal criminal and military investigations.

Particularly high-profile investigations have included, for example, the Mumbai Adarsh Housing scam and the many misdeeds in the run-up to the 2010 Commonwealth Games in New Delhi, both of which contributed significantly to the anti-corruption movement of recent times.

Joseph's articles have featured in many publications both in India and internationally.

A recipient of many awards for journalism, he won the India Press Club of North America's Madhyamasree Puraskaram in 2019.

He has written two non-fictions -- 'A Feast of Vultures: The Hidden Business of Democracy in India' (2016), and the latest being 'The Silent Coup: A History of India’s Deep State' (2021).
