Transnational Investigations: the new series
The African Investigative Publishing Collective is proud to launch its new series of transnational investigations.
The 'TI's', on subjects ranging from terror to malaria to witchcraft were conducted over the second half of last year and the first months of 2016. They span sixteen countries, of which thirteen in Africa and three in Europe.
A total of twenty-four journalists (eighteen from Africa and six from AIPC partner ZAM's European network) delved into under-explored realities and came up with surprising conclusions.
Find out how malaria aid has worsened the epidemic in Ghana; how politicians are extorted by 'witches' in Cameroon and how a General has partnered with a multinational to plunder gemstones in Mozambique. Read about Botswana's rising securocracy and about heroic civil servants who fight corruption from within. Understand how the War on Terror, as it is conducted now, only leads to more terrorism in Kenya and Mali.

The projects, involving a total of twenty-four journalists, were all headed by an AIPC member. Editorial support for the investigations came from ZAM (www.zammagazine.com) whilst the projects were made possible financially by OxfamNovib.
Eighteen media worldwide are co-publishing the stories.
