Digitization has created new opportunities for journalistic research and presentation. Data journalists raise the potential of the media to fulfill its function as society's watchdog in regard to economics and politics. They use digital tools to quickly browse huge amounts of data and reveal new facts and conclusions to their audience.

This panel will give an overview of the state of the art in data-driven journalism and show best practice examples from Costa Rica, Germany and elsewhere. The panel will discuss the relevance of modern data-driven journalism for developing countries and examine the training needs involved.

Following the panel discussion, Ms. Segnini and Mr. Lorenz will demonstrate some of the tools and methods used in data-driven journalism. You are welcome to join. Further details will be announced. If you are interested, please send a short message to
