Supporting Investigative Journalism

Supporting Investigative Journalism

IJ was created in order to support the development of independent investigative journalism in Romania and the Moldavian Republic as an instrument for combating corruption and consolidating democracy and the rule of law.

The specific objectives of Supporting Investigative Journalism are:

- Professionalizing investigative journalists from Romania and Moldavia by offering access to the best national and foreign trainers and experts
- Creating opportunities for experience exchange and knowledge and techniques transfer between local, regional and national journalists from Romania and Moldavia and their European counterparts
- Stimulating the development of independent investigations by providing the necessary financial support.

Over 45 journalists were trained though the activities of the project and 24 journalists were awarded with grants for investigation and had the opportunity to participate in international training sessions and conferences. The program offered national and international exposure for journalist from the local and central press from Romania and Moldavia.

Freedom House Romania is an independent nongovernmental organization that supports the expansion of freedom in the world.


Freedom is possible only in democratic political systems in which the governments are accountable to their own people; the rule of law prevails; and freedoms of expression, association, and belief, as well as respect for the rights of minorities and women, are guaranteed.


Freedom ultimately depends on the actions of committed and courageous men and women. We support nonviolent civic initiatives in societies where freedom is denied or under threat and we stand in opposition to ideas and forces that challenge the right of all people to be free. Freedom House Romania functions as a catalyst for freedom, democracy and the rule of law through its analysis, advocacy and action.
