ARTICLE 19 ISSUES INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM MANUAL IN ARABIC

Journalists with access to information can act as an "unchained watchdog - keeping the state on a short leash." But what about Middle Eastern countries who don't have freedom of information laws, or, worse yet, where trying to hold officials accountable could cost you your life?

Get equipped with basic skills for writing investigative reports and campaigning for your right to access information with ARTICLE 19's latest manual, "Manual for Arab Journalists on Freedom of Information and Investigative Journalism".

The manual, initially developed as part of a UN-funded workshop held for Iraqi journalists in June, summarises international standards on free expression, tells you how to begin writing investigative reports while following some basic ethics, and doles out tips on campaigning for freedom of information laws.
