A new investigation into the energy sector
We are very happy to announce a collaboration between The Manifold and SourceMaterial, a UK-based, non profit investigative journalism outfit. Following up on The Manifold’s 2019 investigation into the politics of lignite-fuelled electricity production, this new project will investigate current developments in the Greek energy sector and examine what they signify for EU climate policy and other transnational issues.
Founded in 2017, the SourceMaterial team uses in-depth journalism to uncover stories that hold the powerful to account. Its publication partners have included NBC, The Times, The Guardian, The Observer, The Independent, Vice World News, openDemocracy and the BBC programmes Newsnight, File on 4 and Spotlight.
The project is already underway. We are planning a series of stories, and for the Greek language versions we are partnering up once more with Inside Story, an independent outlet specialising in long-form investigative and explanatory journalism. Although Inside Story posts some of its content subscription-free on social media, it does rely on members’ subscriptions to maintain its independence. So, if you are a Greek speaker, please consider subscribing here or forward this to anyone you know who might be interested.
Our first story in this series should appear by the end of the month or thereabouts. We’ll keep you posted.
