A young woman had spent most of two years tied down in a bed at a psychiatric hospital in Oslo. How unique was her story? Investigative journalists Synnove Asebo and Mona Norman from Norwegian daily VG spent months and FOI laws to gain public access to the handwritten protocols where each incident of coercion was registered. By digitizing thousands of handwritten notes, building their own tool to make digital logs and analyzing the material, VG could expose new and groundbreaking statistics on unlawful use of physical coercion against psychiatric patients. The material was presented in interactive digital graphics, longreads and a video documentary – to visualize the use of coercion in a field were the patient’s stories had to be anonymous. The project has won several prizes for investigative journalism and data journalism.
