Fixers Guide

In nearly a decade of work studying the foreign correspondent-fixer dynamic, the Global Reporting Centre has identified several key areas of concern for local journalists: respect, editorial agency, pay, safety, and credit.

Working together with a diverse group of journalists — editors, reporters, and fixers — we compiled a list of suggested best practices for global newsrooms when hiring local journalists. It is our hope that this document will create a standard for working practices.
