Producing data journalism in some of the most impoverished, unequal and unsafe parts of the world for some of the most uneducated, oppressed and voiceless people has brought us to an important conclusion about data journalism. Injustice, inequality and discrimination are ubiquitous, insidious and overlooked. Across the world, Internews is growing open data communities to help people to understand data, what it means, and why it matters. The Internews method teaches journalists to use investigative methods to dig deep into the institutional barriers preventing development of marginalized groups. They analyze complex dynamics that cause development initiatives to succeed or fail, people to become sick or well and inequality to grow or shrink.
