Investigating a changing Europe
We, experienced journalists from nine 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 Europe-wide relevance to hold them accountable.
This week, the US government announced a sudden about-turn on its stance on vaccine waivers, which was met with praise from many EU officials. Investigate Europe documents how governments opposed the waiver fiercely until the very last moment.
Palm oil or sunflower oil? Glucose-fructose syrup or sugar? Food items sold under the same name and with the same branding and packaging should not differ among EU member states. But sometimes, they do.
Investigate Europe is donation-financed
Europe needs investigative journalism. Now more than ever.
But: Investigative journalism takes time and effort. EU-wide investigative journalism is even more expensive. We can only sustain our work with the help of foundations and individual readers.
