This report is the culmination of the exploratory phase of a project conducted by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Oxford, and the Alliance for Useful Evidence. It summarises and further develops the discussions brought up during three workshops carried out between June and November 2014.

Effective communication of data through data visualisation is becoming more necessary.
