In January 2011, Al Jazeera launched its [[WikiLeaks]]-inspired Al Jazeera Transparency Unit (AJTU). The aim of the AJTU initiative is to promote tranparency in government and corporate practices.

Essentially, AJTU encourages whistleblowers to anonymously submit content for review by Al Jazeera’s editorial department. Content submitted for evaluation may include documents, photography, audio and video clips, etc. Submissions deemed to be of merit may be featured on Al Jazeera broadcasts.
