Investigative Journalist Undercover

The Investigative Journalist Undercover is a global network of more than 190 reporters in more than 65 countries who collaborate on in-depth investigative stories, focusing on issues that do not stop at national frontiers: cross-border crime, corruption, and the accountability of power.

Investigative Journalism means the unveiling of matters that are concealed either deliberately by someone in a position of power, or accidentally, behind a chaotic mass of facts and circumstances – and the analysis and exposure of all relevant facts to the public. In this way investigative journalism crucially contributes to freedom of expression and media development, which are at the heart of UNESCO’s mandate.
