Collection Title: * World Bank Institute (WBI) case studiesVolume No:2

Summary: This case of Freedonia forms an integral part of the World Bank Institute communication strategy programs' courses in investigative journalism. It focuses on a)the need to ask probing questions; b) the desirability of being skeptical, especially when receiving information from interested biased parties; c) how to handle sources of information; and d) such ethical issues as to whether it is appropriate to pay sources for exclusive information. This is a case of graft and corruption in the fictitious country of Freedonia, mainly in Palisades, the capital. The case study comprises eleven parts - to be used sequentially. Each part presents new information and challenges the journalist to make critical decisions about how to report each new piece of "news". As the case unfolds, so does an intricate web of bribery and corruption that develops both the technical skills and the professional ethics of the participants.
