Chuck Lewis explores the efficacy and potential of increased journalistic and academic data, research and reporting collaboration, in the context of credible, accountability information. Credible journalistic, academic, research “think tank” and other investigative, data-gathering institutions and individuals must increase the extent to which they share their information, knowledge and expertise with each other, and embrace new synergistic approaches and previously unimaginable collaborations and potential partnerships. And there is increasing evidence of editorial cross-pollination and collaboration. To what extent can the public space for timely, authoritative, accountability-related information and reporting about those in (government and private sector) power can be enlarged? Evelyn Groenik and Anas Aremeyaw Anas will explore how get African investigative journalism on international platforms. It will look at five potential pillars for how African and Western colleagues can overcome cross-cultural challenges to do this, which include making sure both sides are investigative journalists, that media houses are ready to accept very new kinds of investigations, that is intensive dialogue throughout while working on the story, that media houses needs in length, style and angle are clear and that both sides create the story.
