Freedom of expression, though guaranteed in all European constitutions, is under pressure in a lot of countries. ECPMF and Journalismfund.eu launched in 2015 and 2016 two calls for applications for their FoX grant, which gives journalists who know of a breach of freedom of expression the time and money to document it.
