Who?

Teams of professional journalists from Europe and/or Asia are eligible to apply.

Team members from other continents are eligible as well, as long as the investigation focuses on an aspect of how Asian victims of forced labour are exploited in Europe.

Eligibility criteria:

  • Cross-border teams of at least two journalists can submit a proposal for a journalistic investigation.
  • The applicants must be professional journalists (written or audio-visual press). Personal references and/or references to earlier work are essential in that respect.
  • Only natural persons can apply for a grant.
  • The project proposal must focus on an aspect or case of the exploitation of Asian victims of human trafficking and/or forced labour in Europe.
  • The project must be published by at least two professional news outlets in at least two different countries. Letters of intent for publication from at least two professional news outlets are required.
  • Investigative journalism published by professional media in any form is eligible, no matter whether print, online, broadcast or cross-media. All journalistic end products qualify for a grant: newspaper and magazine articles, radio and television documentaries and series, photo-reportages and books, podcasts and journalistic non-fiction books.

What?

This grant programme aims to enable independent journalistic investigations into the exploitation of Asian victims of human trafficking and forced labour in Europe.

Cross-border teams of professional journalists can apply for a grant to cover working time and/or expenses to investigate, document and expose aspects and cases of forced labour, cross-continental trafficking and other issues related to the exploitation of Asian victims in Europe.

Next to a grant, teams can also apply for a mentor to provide assistance with either the focus of the investigation or the need for competences in a specific skill.

Eligibility

This project aims at strengthening local cross-border, independent and investigative journalism in order to increase the availability of qualitative local news, and at making citizens more aware of local – and often interrelated and global – issues and possible solutions. As such it aims to contribute to citizens’ critical thinking, well-informed debates/decisions and to foster civic engagement.

Funding

  • The total available amount to be distributed per call will be 80.000,00 €.
  • The programme is supported by Porticus.
