Here are three experts on the topic: the founder of nonprofit IndiaSpend, India's first data journalism news service; a US expert who has raised millions of dollars from private foundations; and the woman who built Hong Kong University's Journalism and Media Studies Centre into one of the region's leading journalism programs.
