Why Investigative Journalism Matters

Investigative Impact showcases the impact of investigative journalism around the world. It focuses on the critical contribution made by in-depth, systematic reporting to fighting corruption, promoting accountability, and fostering transparency. Despite its often dramatic results, the field receives relatively little support and is routinely under attack. This project includes 10 case studies of high-impact reports, video interviews with leading investigative journalists in 20 countries, and a comprehensive survey of available resources.
