Investigative peace journalists often have to navigate through a number of challenges in accomplishing their tasks (Suntai & Shem, 2018).  Suntai and Shem (2018) discuss the risks and hazards of investigative journalists such as political interference, economic constraints, and limited access to information.  Ismaila, Ahmada, and Mustaffa (2014) describe challenges in reporting on leaders without access to public documents.  Bromley (2017) highlights the participation of investigative journalism in advancing human rights.
