Grenzüberschreitender Journalismus – Handbuch zum Cross-Border-Journalismus

Review by European Journalism Observatory Januar 2018.

The Handbook on crossborder journalism is the first of its kind. The book provides a step-by-step introduction to the method of cross-border journalism from idea to publication and beyond. It builds upon own experience of the author and a long series of interviews with the pioneers of crossborder journalism.

The work process of the practitioners is enriched with insigths by scholars of various disciplines of relevance. The book includes numerous examples.

The Handbook on Cross-Border Journalism is available in Danish via Ajour publishing house.
