E. Europe Investigative Network Launched

Journalists in the Visegrad region of Eastern Europe have launched a new cross-border investigative journalism initiative, VSquare. The network includes three GIJN members -- Poland's Reporters Foundation, Hungary's Atlatszo, and the Czech Center for Investigative Journalism. Its goals: "to give citizens access to verified information through in-depth, high quality investigative reporting and to promote investigative journalism as a public good... to support our colleagues and train the future generations of journalists... to serve as watchdogs over public affairs, governments and businesses, and uncover any abuses of power and corruption...  that might be bypassed by the mainstream media."
