World of Drones

Contributoria's Sarah Hartley writes on the growing use of drones in journalism, "from incredible imagery of the natural world to investigations that couldn’t be told with conventional cameras." And GIJN's Research Desk lists databases on drone activity worldwide, including GIJN member Bureau for Investigative Journalism's Covert Drone War project.

A Brazilian development expert reflects on what would happen if governments disclosed every document from major infrastructure projects -- including bids, contracts, and audits. The result: accountability.

Research Desk: New Tools

In the latest Research Desk, GIJN ace librarian Gary Price dives into not only drones but free tools for quick document downloads and RSS feeds, reports from the European Parliament Research Service, a global guide to green companies, and more.
