Investigative Journalism Manual

Also available in Deutsch

The Media Programmes of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung have launched an updated version of the Investigative Journalism Manual merging the perspective of various continents in that field.

The Investigative Journalism Manual illustrates the most important facts about Investigative Journalism. Journalist will have a better understanding about the difference between an investigative Journalist and other journalists, what is needed to find a reliable source, how to protect their research and data as well as how to ask the right questions. The project started more than ten years ago in the Media Programme Sub-Sahara Africa. Today, it combines the know-how of all Media Programmes of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung. The Manual is so far available in English and Mongolian – but many other languages are planned. Regularly we publish on the Investigative Journalism Manual website interviews and stories of Investigative Journalists. They talk about their first story, their criteria to proceed with an investigation, how they find their sources, what methods they use to protect their research and how often their investigation needs cross-border collaboration.
