GIJC23 – Crowd Driven Journalism: Using Communities to Investigate

One of the great spin-offs of the digital age is that journalists can tap into crowds and communities in ways unimaginable only a few years ago. Local communities are reporting impactful stories, providing tips and resources, and bolstering the finances of watchdog media around the world.

Here are journalists from remarkably diverse environments — Malaysia, Mexico, Germany, and the UK — talking about how their newsrooms have integrated citizens and subscribers into their journalism, from the hyperlocal to the national. The stories are extraordinary, from supporting legal challenges to Malaysiakini to Quinto Elemento’s documentation of the missing in Mexico’s drug war.
