Globalisation has had an enormous impact on the way we live. Business and trade take place across borders, political decisions are made on international level, criminal networks operate in various countries. Society is more international and more complex than ever before.
At the same time news media, faced with increasing financial pressure, seem to be moving in the opposite direction. More news items have to be produced, there is little time for research and international news is being cut back on. Cross-border investigative journalism fits into no traditional business model whatsoever. As a result, journalists who want to look into matters thoroughly or focus on topics that exceed national borders don't get the chance to do so.
Journalismfund.eu supports journalists who have good ideas for quality in-depth and cross-border research. We focus on two ways of doing so, through our projects. The first is by giving working grants to journalists that enable them to work on a project over a longer period of time. The second is by providing networking opportunities for the investigative journalism community to share ideas and methods. Several stories we have supported have had significant impact. Have a look at our cross-border projects here.
We are partly funded by foundations and, for our Flemish Pascal Decroos Fund project, by the Flemish government. However, support from the community is essential to the way we work, too. Not only does it diversify our income, thereby making us less dependent on a single source of income, it also tightens our bond with the community. Support journalists across Europe look beyond their country's border. Every contribution helps!
