Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism, US

The Elaine and Gerald Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism, the nation’s first investigative reporting center based at a university, was launched in September 2004 to help fill the void in high-quality public interest and investigative journalism—and to counter the increasing corporate control of what Americans read, see, and hear.


SCOOP is founded by the Danish Association of Investigative Journalists and supports investigations in Eastern Europe, Russia, Caucasus and Central Asia.

Soma Foundation, Hungary

The Gőbölyös József “Soma” Foundation seeks to enhance the functioning of democracy in Hungary by providing awards, stipends and legal defense to investigative journalists working toward greater transparency and accountability in society. The Foundation was established in 2001 to honor the memory of Gőbölyös József, or simply Soma to those who loved him, a pioneer in investigative journalism in Hungary who viewed the pursuit of hidden truth as essential for democracy to develop and remain strong and resilient.

Stockholm School of Economics (SSE Riga) Centre for Media Studies

The Media Centre offers further education in investigative journalism and business reporting and organizes regularly workshops and seminars in these fields. Further – once a year, in August – a international three-day seminar is held, focusing on three subjects/skills of major importance for quality journalism. The Centre is run within the framework of Stockholm School of Economics in Riga and is supported by The Anders foundation in Sweden since 2009.

Swiss Investigative Reporters Network

The Swiss investigative network is an independent organisation promoting the exchange of contacts and competences between the Swiss investigative reporters and their foreign colleagues. The purpose of this non-lucrative network is to facilitate access to data and resources and promote methods of best practices in investigative reporting.
