BIRN Albania Opens Call for Investigations on Labour Rights

Posted on

BIRN Albania launched a call for investigative stories on labour rights on July 19.

BIRN is offering grants for three journalists to cover labour rights stories, with mentoring by experienced editors.

The call is held as part of the project ‘Strengthening Media’s Role in the Fight against Corruption’, supported by the Open Society Foundation in Albania.

The project aims to strengthen reporting on corruption in the country through cooperation with civil society, in order to help create a more informed citizenry that is engaged in the democratic process.

Three journalists will be awarded grants to cover their expenses while conducting investigations and writing their stories on labour rights.

The journalists will have around three months to dig deeper and research their ideas, and will also have the opportunity to work with experienced editors as mentors to guide them through the process of writing in accordance with BIRN standards.

The call only applies to journalists from Albania and closes on August 25, 2019.
