Participation in this event is restricted to grantees of the IJ4EU Investigation Support Scheme.

Team members of cross-border projects selected under the first round of the 2020 Investigation Support Scheme are invited to take part in an interactive online session with Emily Schultheis on covering Europe’s populists, illiberals and autocrats.

Speaker

Emily Schultheis is a freelance journalist and fellow with the Institute of Current World Affairs based in Berlin, where she focuses on far-right political movements and challenges to democracy in Europe. Her reporting has appeared in The Atlantic, Foreign Policy, The Guardian, The New York Times, Slate and Politico, among others. Before moving to Berlin in 2017, Emily covered US politics as a Washington, DC-based staff writer for Politico, National Journal and CBS News.

This is the second of three “ask-me-anything” calls for the first cohort of Investigation Support Scheme grantees in 2020. The calls are part of the coaching and training support that the IJ4EU fund provides to grantees to boost their skills and ensure the success of individual projects.
