Investigative journalism in Turkey is dangerous. Publishing public interest stories from the outside can be a lifeline for the Turkish press. There are opportunities to transform the way in-depth, Turkey-related investigations are done. But diaspora media, too, have their own challenges. How much hope should we place in regional – as well as interorganisational – collaborations as holding the key to quality investigative reporting where there is heavy state repression? How do the experiences, methods and tools differ among Turkish journalists living in and outside of the country? And what should non-Turkish journalists consider when they look for collaboration with Turkish colleagues?
