Journalist for 12 years, Nedim Türfent was imprisoned for nearly 7 years for his work.

Russia’s brutal invasion of Ukraine has shaken Europe and beyond. The war has led to a humanitarian catastrophe for people on the ground, and also included numerous deliberate attacks on journalists in an attempt to silence their vital reporting.

On October 12 and 13, Europe’s best cross-border investigative journalists gathered in Brussels, Belgium for the 2023 IJ4EU UNCOVERED Conference.

Within the framework of our ongoing “Opportunities in Exile” programme, ECPMF has coordinated a series of German language workshops for journalists and media workers in exile in Germany, together with Amal, Berlin!.

This investigation led by Lighthouse Reports, a Dutch-based non-profit that works with newsrooms across Europe, exposes the mysterious men in masks who beat refugees at Europe’s borders.

In recent years, the Chinese state has allegedly locked away a million Uyghurs in internment camps. The Xinjian Police Files, winner of a 2023 IJ4EU Impact Award, attaches names and faces to this brutal system, providing an unprecedented look behind the veil of secrecy.

Honourable mention at the 2023 Impact Award Ceremony went to “Peat Pressure, an investigation by Irish investigative organisation Noteworthy that exposes a system of unregulated peat extraction and how two multi-million-euro horticultural peat companies have extracted it without consent and in breach of EU environmental law.

The winners for the 2023 IJ4EU Impact Award were announced at an award ceremony in Leipzig on 31 March 2023.

The European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF) has officially launched its latest project to support journalists living and working in exile in Germany.

At times like these, we need journalists and media workers more than ever. With that, they need support more than ever. Since Russia’s invasion, we have offered practical support to journalists from Ukraine.
