What we do

We, nine experienced journalists from eight European countries, are “Investigate Europe”. We research as a multinational team. We share, merge and crosscheck facts – tackling the usual national bias. We point out responsible transnational structures and actors in issues of European-wide relevance to make it possible to hold them accountable.

The 5G mass experiment

Are you happy with 4G mobile? You may be, but governments and industry are already looking at the next level – 5G – and the infrastructure for ‘smart homes’ and the ‘internet of things’. According to EU plans, Europe will be hyper-connected by 2025.

And why the rush? So that Europe will not lose out to the USA and China in a global
race for dominance.

So what is the problem? A growing body of science that warns of health risks
from long-term exposure to electromagnetic radiation by mobile
technology. There is almost no research on the effects of the higher frequencies
needed for 5G.

You’ll be connected. But at what price?

As part of this investigation we spoke to many scientists involved in the definition of limits and standards. We have criticised the system as being a “closed club”. To make the common core of the investigation more accessible to our readers we are now publishing an animated graphic showing the connection of the scientific bodies and the researchers, along with excerpts of the interviews.

Campaign against Chinese giant Huawei reveals Europe’s weakness

A clichéd image of an old enemy is once again stalking Europe’s corridors of power: The yellow peril. According to briefings by ministerial and security sources, China wants to use the network technology of the Huawei corporation to infiltrate European communication systems.

IE-member Harald Schumann asks in our new column: Why are those concerns raised now and why are they just limited to Huawei?

Sweatshops on wheels

Big haulage companies exploit drivers from low-wage countries as a business model, often with severe consequences for those behind the wheel.

In a process known as social dumping, companies employ migrant workers paying them at a level far below the accepted rate for drivers in the countries they’re working. The European Union has so far allowed this to take place, condoning, in fact, some of the worst practices in the road transport industry.
