Holding governments accountable by supporting investigative journalism and reforming media laws.

Independent media and open information serve a crucial watchdog function, providing citizens with the information they need to keep the public and private sectors accountable. 

Internews trains journalists in investigative reporting, produces content to encourage dialogue on corruption, and helps reform media laws and expand freedom of information rights and internet freedom policies and practices.   

We also have a rich practice in data journalism, helping seasoned and emerging professionals locate, clean and present data that supports their investigative work. 

Once the press is demonized, weakened and made to lose credibility, there are fewer voices to shout against repression. There is less impetus in questioning the actions of government, or insisting on transparency, on justice.
