At the heart of journalism is the ability to find and tell important stories in a compelling way. In a world where data makes up an ever more important part of our lives, this session explores how journalists are using data to:
- uncover and explore stories of international importance,
- analyse the behaviour of important institutions in new ways,
- explain complex events to the general public.
