Supporting cross-border investigative reporting in Europe
Investigative reporting that reveals facts in the public interest protects democracy. Stories that uncover corruption, financial crime, human rights abuses and environmental damage are rarely nowadays confined to a single state. Such journalism is complex and costly at a time when the news business everywhere has been put under pressure by digital disruption.
The IJ4EU fund was launched in 2018 by the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF) and the International Press Institute (IPI) to provide financial support to cross-border investigative reporting in the EU. The fund is managed by IPI.
