BIRN Builds up Library of Investigative Journalism

Posted on

BIRN Macedonia on February 25 donated a variety of books to the School of Journalism and Public Relations in Macedonia in order to provide additional support to the students of the school in strengthening their skills and knowledge of investigative journalism.

The donation consisted of more than 20 books on topics related to investigative journalism, covering trends in journalism, mining data, computing-assisted reporting, data visualization, manuals and best practices in investigative journalism in the world, and more.

BIRN also donated copies of BIRN’s guide to investigative journalism in the Balkans, “Digging Deeper”, by Sheila Coronel, director of the Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism and professor at Columbia University New York.

The main purpose of the books is to help students of journalism in Macedonia to expand their knowledge in the field with the latest literature available at the moment. Apart from students at the School for Journalism, the books may be used by students of other faculties, journalists and media professionals.

This donation was supported by the US Embassy in Macedonia and the USAID Mission in Macedonia through its Project for Investigative Journalism and Cooperation between Media and Civil Society.
