Online communities and investigative peace journalism

Editorial

Dr. Tamaro J. Green

 

Emerging technologies such as open data and online communities may facilitate collaboration for investigative peace journalists.  Cho and Wash (2021) study the experiences of encounters on online communities.  Noveck (2017) predicts that open data may eventually lead to more active citizenship and more collaborative governance.  Online communities may also benefit from the ability of investigative peace journalists to collaborate on reporting.  Prilla, Blunk, and Chounta (2020) prescribe for designers of online communities to enable tools for collaborative reflection.
