BIRN Albania Launches Call for Investigative Reports on Public Administration

Posted on

The Balkan Investigative Reporting Network in Albania launched a call for investigative stories on November 10th.

The call is part of the program ‘Exposing Corruption in Albania,’ supported by the Open Society Foundation in Albania, Balkan Trust for Democracy and National Endowment for Democracy.

In this call that closes on November 20th, three journalists will be awarded a grant to cover their expenses while doing the investigation and writing the story on corruption and impunity related to public administration.

Journalists will have about two months to dig deeper and research their ideas, but also will have the opportunity to work with experienced editors as their mentors to guide them through the process of writing to BIRN standards.

Until December 2016, other two more calls for investigations will be launched, covering topics on Organized Crime and Local Government.  

The call only applies to journalists from Albania.
