In-Depth Crisis Reporting
What happens to crises after they disappear from the news? Often the most important things happen after journalists leave reporting areas, sometimes precisely because they have left. Still, reporters always descend on places as events happen and leave just as suddenly, pulled out by their own circumstances rather than because the story ends, resulting in gaping holes in public understanding of crises that are shaping our world. The idea behind Coda Story is to move away from news as a constant stream of incrementally-updated articles by reimagining a single-subject crisis reporting platform. Coda’s team of international and local journalists goes in with a long-lens view and will stay on a single story for up to a year, covering it from different angles.
