Good Governance reporting course
A course offered by TrustMedia seeks to educate journalists on how to combat corruption by teaching them tools to identify, report on, and raise awareness about corruption.

The course also seeks to improve/opfordre an objective ethical approach to investigations along with raising critical thinking with the journalists.
A part form this, the course aims at giving practical advice on how investigative journalism techniques can be used to uncover corruption and also promises to look into the legal repercussions that may be involved in uncovering corruption.
