The article focuses on journalist David Kaplan's report "Global Investigative Journalism: Strategies for Support," which was commissioned by the Center for International Media Assistance (CIMA). According to the report, there is a lack of international aid or financial support for investigative reporting in spite of its role in fostering public accountability, battling crime and corruption, and raising standards in the news media. It also stressed the need to support global nonprofit investigative reporting and training centers, as well as improved networking among different investigative centers. It is also imperative that investigative reporting programs represent the highest professional standards in reporting, editing and ethical conduct, the report noted.
