A new package of stories, maps and graphics showcases our survey of reporting organizations overseas. In addition, Executive Editor Charles Lewis reflects on his years of traveling and advising startups in other countries.
You'll also find the results of our survey, in which we looked at more than 100 journalism organizations in other countries, focusing on those 27 doing primarily investigative reporting. The story's authors, Pietro Lombardi and Daniel Farber Ball, used an online survey, phone and Skype interviews to connect with journalists who risk their lives and the safety of their families to pursue stories that enlighten people and reveal corruption, lack of government or corrupt accountability and state and corporate secrets.
What these organizations share is the nonprofit business model; how and where they get their funding is part of our report. You can sort by organization here, and see a map here of the groups we focused on.
This package is an outgrowth of our report a few years ago about the growth of nonprofit journalism in the United States, particularly in the years since the recession, which wrought huge changes in the for-profit model.
