1)  Objective

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.

With this programme Journalismfund.eu therefore wants to stimulate collaborations to document this phenomenon and disseminate the investigation results to the general public. In that manner it contributes to the enabling of a well-informed debate by citizens and policy makers, which is a precondition for a healthy democracy. Next to a grant and mentoring programme, the Modern Slavery Unveiled project also entails training programme for investigative journalists and civil society organisations.

2) Eligibility

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.

3) Location

Actions must take place in Europe.

4) Budget

The Modern Slavery Unveiled grant programme will distribute in total €320,000 over 4 application rounds. The total available amount to be distributed per call will be €80,000.

5) Application

The next application deadline is 16 February 2023.
