Transnational Journalism Networks “From Below”. Cross-Border Journalistic Collaboration in Individualized Newswork
Abstract: Journalism pioneers practice and foster the method of cross-border collaboration, contributing to the ongoing transformation of the journalistic field. This paper analyzes cross-border journalistic collaborations primarily initiated beyond large media organizations. Based on information provided by Hostwriter members and Dataharvest – the EIJC participants, this study carves out (1) central motives, (2) types and characteristics of cross-border research collaborations, and (3) the advantages and challenges of the method as perceived by practitioners “from below.” We argue that bottom-up collaborations contribute to a normalization of the practice through small-scale, less institutionalized, and less binding forms that enable a gradual transition towards a new mindset in the broader field. The above pioneering platforms foster a developing network of open-minded and multicultural practitioners.
