Several factors led to the creation of We Report in 2014. Firstly, we discovered the need to share the skills amongst independent journalists from several European countries. Secondly, we wanted to cover international topics for multimedia. Thirdly, we wanted above all more time and space for self-initiative journalism, groundwork and investigative stories.
Since then, we’ve been collaborating for major European media outlets such as Mediapart, ARTE, Libération, RFI, Die Zeit, Der Spiegel, L’Espresso, la RTS, La Cité, Les Jours and La Tribune de Genève.
Together, we’ve been launching in-depth research projects, in France and internationally. We worked on Interpol, reveiled the Petrobas and the Nestlé Vittel scandal, investigated on Europe’s far right, toxic waste, the tobacco industry, nepotism amongst local politicians and several cases of pedophilia in the French catholic church and in sports.
In South-East Turky, we travelled along with Armenians, one decade after the genocide. From Greece to Serbia, via Kosovo and Macedonia, we covered the arrival of migrants in Europa on the Balkan trail. In Slovakia and Romania, we shed light on Roma people being victim of segregation.
Our joint investigative projects have been winning awards and prestigious grants in France, Switzerland, Germany and Italy.
