Issues and Challenges
The previous chapters have outlined different aspects pertaining to the state of investigative journalism in the Arab region, which include the training of investigative reporting, examples of practice in various Arab countries, and the issue of access to information. There are a few common issues and obstacles that consistently surface in these discussions, such as political constraints, social pressures, and cultural traditions. This chapter looks into the issues and challenges facing investigative reporting in the Arab region, some of which are generic to investigative journalism around the world, as discussed at the start of this book, and some of which are specific to the region.
