. What is Coda Story?

Coda Story is a single-issue web platform that puts a team of journalists on one crisis at a time and stays with it, providing unique depth, continuity and understanding to events that shape our world. Coda is for those who believe that understanding a crisis is essential to addressing it and those who want to know what happened after the spotlight moved on. In music a Coda is a distinctive passage, usually towards the end, which defines the entire composition. In journalism we want to be a stand-alone voice which helps to define a crisis.
