Our first File, The Children and the State, has just been published. Since July 2018, The Manifold team has been investigating the child protection system in Greece, in an effort to document its failures and probe the reasons that might explain them. We now have a sufficient amount of material, so that we can present the first iteration of the File. Now that the File is published, we will continue to update it with new developments on a regular basis. To get an overview of the first File, please read our Editorial.
Every File in The Manifold Files, starting with the first one, is a collection of material that records the investigation of a single issue. It is made up of Stories, Actors, and Documents. Each File has two ways in which it can be read: The Unfolding Story; and the Curated Story. To find out what all this means, familiarise yourself with the way The Manifold Files website works, and get the most out of our approach to in-depth journalism, please have a look at the User’s Guide.
More info on the File, including contributors and funders, is available in the File 01 ID. More info on The Manifold is available in the What We Do, Who We Are, Other Work.
