Governance & Transparency
Independent media and open information serve a crucial watchdog function, providing citizens with the information they need to keep the public and private sectors accountable. In many countries repressive legal environments inhibit the media’s ability to play this role and some journalists and civil society actors lack the skills to conduct the in-depth investigative reporting that is essential to accountability. Internews trains journalists in investigative reporting, produces content to encourage dialogue on corruption, and helps reform media laws and expand freedom of information rights and internet freedom policies and practices. We also have a rich practice in data journalism, helping seasoned and emerging professionals locate, clean and present data that supports their investigative work.
