From hate crimes to extrajudicial killings, the abuse of human rights takes many forms. In many cases these violations would remain unknown without the work of investigative journalists. In some countries it is difficult or impossible to investigate these abuses, and fact-finding on the ground needs to be supplemented with tools and techniques such as video, text messages, satellite imagery, and mobile phone imagery and audio. Here are some remarkable case studies of journalists exposing the truth in their home countries: out-of-control security forces in Brazil’s favelas; forced sterilization in Japan; and extra-judicial killings in Venezuela.
