Journalismfund.eu launches ‘Modern Slavery Unveiled’, a project to provide critical resources and know-how to journalists to investigate exploitation of Asian victims of human trafficking and forced labour in Europe.

The project comprises of a grant programme for investigative journalists, a mentor programme for grantees, and a training programme for journalists and civil society organisations.

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

Mentor programme: 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.

Training programme: in a next stage Journalismfund.eu will also deploy a training programme for journalists and civil society organisations. Training topics will include security, knowledge on human trafficking, project management, cross-border investigations, and dissemination and impact maximisation.
