We’d like to welcome you to INQ, Crikey’s ambitious new inquiry journalism initiative. Starting June 24, INQ investigative reporting — lifting the rocks, connecting the dots, following the money trail and exposing misuse of power — will appear regularly in Crikey.
We look forward to sharing this exciting new phase with you.
