In this book, Story-based inquiry: A manual for investigative journalists, authors Mark Lee Hunter, Nils Hanson, Rana Sabbagh, Luuk Sengers, Drew Sullivan, Flemming Tait Svith and Pia Thordsen present detailed, systematic and practical processes and procedures through which journalists can engage in investigative reporting. The authors acknowledge that, like all human activities, investigation consumes time, money and energy, but at the end it is worth the effort. This manual, published by the UNESCO head office in Paris, represents a major contribution to the literature on investigative journalism.
