Sarajevo, February 17, 2021 – The BH Journalists Association organizes four workshops / webinars on investigative journalism through the Zoom platform for media workers from local media, as well as for freelance journalists.
The aim of the webinar is to empower journalists, editors in local media, and freelance journalists from local communities to create and produce research / analytical content, in order to contribute to the strengthening of independent and free journalism in BiH.
The webinar is designed as an interactive online workshop, and consists of a theoretical and practical part led by Dragana Erjavec (Radio Free Europe) and Zina Tandir Đelilović (Journal Magazine).
The theoretical part includes lectures and a discussion on what investigative journalism is, what is the social significance of investigative journalism, which media in BiH deal with investigative journalism, and whether investigative journalism is a risky business.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn how to become an investigative journalist, how to recognize whether a source is reliable and whether the information is accurate, and how to uncover an affair and begin an investigative story.
After the theoretical part, there is a practical part for participants, where participants will present their ideas for a research story – explain the purpose of the story, how he conceived his research, what is his starting point for research, who will be his interlocutors , how he plans to get the documentation… How to write a research story, how to distinguish what is most important (from the collected data and documents) and what should be published.
