ABSTRACT
This article deals with the growing number of investigative journalism centers and associations since 2000, according to a report for the Center for International Media Assistance (CIMA). There is a global effort to strengthen investigative reporting in spite of the threats and challenges facing investigative journalists in several countries. Some of the risks facing these journalists are censorship, imprisonment, and physical assaults. The rapid growth of investigative journalism centers can be attributed to the Web, which enables collaborative projects. For instance, a small group of journalists at Farmsubsidy.org has pursued the acquisition of databases and information pertaining to how farm subsidies are managed by the European Union in its Euro Common Agricultural Policy program.
