Do you really need a coordinator if you work in a small cross-border team? Can you both participate in an investigation as a reporter and coordinate it? How can you keep track of a team of 60 journalists from 25 countries and keep them (and yourself) sane? And what are the dos and don’ts to keep in mind when coordinating an investigation for the first time?
In this session, led by journalists Hazel Sheffield (coordinator of 'Money to Burn'), Audrey Travere and Phineas Rueckert (coordinators of the Cartel Project by Forbidden Stories), we'll explore the good practices and no-go zones in the coordination of ad-hoc cross-border investigative teams.
