When money, politics, abuse of power and corruption reach across borders, transnational networks of journalists become key to an open, accountable and democratic society. Cross-border investigations such asSwiss Leaks andTobacco Underground have caused public outcry, and in many instances have led to legislative changes and the prosecution of those under investigation.
This game-changing journalism model is increasingly facilitated by the rise of digital tools, access to international databases and the ability to bypass restrictive national freedom of information laws. However, cross-border collaboration is facing its own challenges, from funding opportunities to logistical issues and disparate journalistic cultures.
