Anya Schiffrin, Hannah Clifford, and Theodora Dame Adjin-Tettey have co-authored the second instalment of the 2021 report Saving Journalism: A Vision for the Post-Covid World, which examined the state of journalism during the pandemic. This second instalment, Saving Journalism 2: Global Strategies and a Look at Investigative Journalism goes back to look at some of the promising measurements identified in the original report. GIJN has been granted permission to publish three excerpts from the report on finding the right funding, the dire situation for news outlets in Africa, or the difficulties facing investigative journalism.
