This project is finished
This cycle of five training sessions, held in Tunis in 2014 under the theme "Investigative journalism, corruption, transparency and the right to information," was attended by sixteen journalists working on an investigative report.
Each training session has three parts: general methodology, taken from literature and specialist websites, a case study based on the experiences of participating trainers, and assistance in conducting an investigation.
Participants are accompanied by a tutor throughout their investigations. On completion of training, the investigative report is published by the newspaper or on the website for which the journalist works and may be published in full by the project partners three months later.
At the end of 2014, five investigative reports were published:
“Free, independent journalism is essential for a strong democratic process. During our training in Tunis, we looked at the role of journalists in public debate, the specifics of investigative journalism, the protection of journalists and their rights and duties as defined by international conventions and texts.”
