Investigative Journalism

Media4Change supports both aspiring journalists and experienced media professionals by providing them with various opportunities to gain knowledge and improve their skills, to network and exchange information, to connect with their audiences, also providing innovative tools for their investigations.

Our innovative transparency tool “Karstos pedos” gives journalists a chance to see connections between politically exposed persons (PEPs), legal entities, and public money in a few clicks. Our community members get access to advanced functionality that provides visualization of the shortest paths between PEPs, companies, or public institutions. Interested to know the biggest procurements of a public institution or biggest sales a company had in a specific period? You can also explore using this functionality.  

Join our community to get free access to all of the resources.
