manda Gearing is an investigative journalist, author and broadcaster. She completed her Doctor of Philosophy in the field of Journalism at Queensland University of Technology in 2016. Her thesis Global investigative journalism in the network society explores Castells’ network theory and Berglez’s global journalism theory to conceptualize global investigative journalism and the emergence of a global Fourth Estate. The study found that, although most reporters were reluctant to embrace new technologies, they are finding new ways to engage with audiences, news sources, their colleagues and rival media outlets to create reportage that has yielded significant political or social change.
