New €450,000 EU Fund for Investigations

A fund of up to €450,000 to support cross-border investigative journalism in the European Union is being launched today by the International Press Institute and the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom. The Investigative Journalism for Europe (#IJ4EU) fund, backed by a European Commission grant, is intended to foster and strengthen collaboration among EU-based journalists and newsrooms on revelations in the public interest and of cross-border significance. Teams of investigative reporters or media outlets based in at least two EU countries can apply for grants up to €50,000 to produce investigations on a topic of cross-border relevance and public interest.

IPI Presses for Changes to British Virgin Islands Bill

The ICIJ Offshore Leaks project and investigations into tax havens have hit the British Virgin Islands hard. Officials there are pushing a draconian new law with severe penalties for anyone leaking information or publishing leaked information about BVI offshore companies. The International Press Institute (IPI) is pressing for changes to this bill, which it says could hamper the ability of journalists to do their job.
