Investigative journalism in defense of public interest.

Research Program


About the program

The research program focuses on investigating and studying different phenomena to create a body of work that can be used to advance investigative journalism on the continent.

We answer research questions related to the quality and quantity of investigative stories published by Africa’s media houses to identify challenges and future opportunities in investigative journalism. Under this program, we also collaborate with other partners to take a deep dive into several social economic and political issues by employing investigative journalism as a tool of research.

The program also documents Africa’s big investigative stories annually to provide the continent with a catalogue of stories that have shaped the narrative across Africa.
