The process of investigative journalism training and the degree of its success have differed from one Arab country to the other. This is mainly dependent on the varying factors that have influenced each country. Having said this, there are common issues that can be identified throughout the training process across the region, which include sustainability, time delays, and self-censorship. Based on interviews with organisational directors, board members, industry partners, coaches, and training journalists, in addition to an observational analysis of journalists’ training, these aspects will be discussed in this chapter. First, however, an overview of the training that has been provided to investigative journalists in the region will be outlined.
