The article discusses lessons learned from working with various global networks for investigative journalists. It mentions the establishment of the Farmsubsidy.org in 2004 which helps journalists to access information about sources and beneficiaries of farm subsidies in the European Union (EU), and the development of the Global Investigative Journalism Network (GIJN) in 2003. The author notes that the best approach to networking is to give money and legal advice directly to journalists, and identifying the right people for investigative projects.
