Journalismfund.eu is offering grants under the “Modern Slavery Unveiled Grant” 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.

The Modern Slavery Unveiled project also entails a training programme for investigative journalists and civil society organisations.

For the deployment of this project, Journalismfund.eu will collaborate with several partners, in particular with the Global Investigative Journalism Network (GIJN). The project is supported by Porticus.
