Following the successful launch of Story-Based Inquiry: A Manual for Investigative Journalists (UNESCO 2009), which has been adopted by many journalism programmes in the Arab States, Asia, the United States of America and the Russian Federation, we are pleased to present The Global Investigative Journalism Casebook, (UNESCO 2012).
You can freely download the Casebook, which contains more than 20 investigative stories from nearly every region of the world, covering a wide variety of topical subjects and of special interest to UNESCO such as freedom of information, good governance, social and legal issues, the environment, health and gender, each followed by an explanation of how the authors conducted their research and the writing of the piece.
This book is edited by Dr. Mark Lee Hunter.
