Scheduled for the third Friday of every month, starting in June 2024, “IJ4EU Confidential” will delve into the backstories of collaborative journalistic projects that have set the agenda in Europe and beyond.

The live sessions will feature first-hand accounts from the reporters who drove complex investigations supported by the Investigative Journalism for Europe programme.
