The Cost of Journalism
Journalism is not free, but what does it cost exactly? Next to our trainings, we also receive donations and grants, so we feel it’s only fair to be transparent about the cost of our investigations.
MYANMAR'S LAND GAME
For this story we went to the northern hills of Myanmar. In total we spent € 3279,31 (US$ 3,713.16).
CHINA'S IMPERATIVE ORGANICS
Pesticide deaths and food scarcity make organic food production a global issue. We looked at how the largest country on earth handles their troubled food past for € 2151,20 (US$ 2,440.45).
FIGHTING AN OBEDIENT DEMOCRACY
What happens when a military junta wants to stay in power in the first elections after a coup? We investigated the 2019 elections in Thailand spending € 2677,36 (US$ 3,032.95).
DISINFORMATION SOUTH KOREA
Minorities face discrimination through fake news stories in South Korea. We looked at the YouTube channels making money by spreading disinformation and spent € 4887,03 (US$ 5,569.06).
