Description

More than 100 countries now have freedom of information (FOI) and right-to-information (RTI) laws. But many are not tested and others work poorly.

In this panel, three experts will describe their success in requesting government information using FOI and RTI laws, including ICIJ, which coordinated requests in scores of countries for its medical devices project. Tips and tricks will be shared along with practical ideas for fruitful inquiries.

Speakers

  • Doug Haddix (Speaker) Executive director, Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE)
  • Emilia Diaz Struck (Speaker) Research editor & Latin America coordinator, International Consortium of Investigative Journalists

Description

Data stories require guidance from editors and producers at every stage of the work. It's risky to start editing a data story only when it's submitted by the reporter. In this panel, you'll learn a step-by-step approach to shepherding a data-driven story from idea to publication. Reporters, too, will learn how to partner with their supervisors to make sure their data story is accurate, fair and compelling.
