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.
State institutions should ensure that journalists have unfettered access to information. But being an independent journalist in Central Europe today is a challenge. And it is not just journalism that is at stake here.
A few companies own the Covid-19 vaccines, but they are not able to make nearly enough. Why do European countries continue to dismiss a demand that would let all factories with spare capacity to produce more vaccines?
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.
