Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS)
Established in Washington, D.C., over 50 years ago, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) is a bipartisan, nonprofit policy research organization dedicated to providing strategic insights and policy solutions to help decision makers chart a course toward a better world. The Center’s over 220 full-time staff and large network of affiliated scholars conduct research and analysis and develop policy initiatives that look to the future and anticipate change.
Since 2012, CSIS has also been creating innovative videos, websites, and interactive foreign policy tools. The Andreas C. Dracopoulos iDeas Lab enhances CSIS’s research, reach, and impact through creative digital experiences. CSIS experts partner with the iDeas Lab to create websites, interactive visualizations, custom reports, graphics, videos, and podcasts that effectively communicate policy scholarship and recommendations to a global audience. The iDeas Lab was created in 2011 through the generous support of CSIS trustee Andreas C. Dracopoulos. Our cutting-edge work reaches audiences worldwide to propel policy discourse forward. To date, iDeas Lab projects have been featured on the front pages of the New York Times and highlighted in Senate hearings, and have racked up millions of engagements.

To that end, it supports all kinds of organisations and media outlets, to define a vision for the future of journalism and enhance its quality through innovation and cooperation. Freedom of information and independence of the news media are, and will remain, the main credo of the Global Editors Network and it will back all efforts to enhance press freedom worldwide.
Coming from France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal and Great Britain, Investigate Europe consists of nine experienced reporters. Their working method is to research issues simultaneously, share all information and report in our respective national media, having crosschecked facts and potential national bias.
Their investigations deal with key issues related to this changing Europe, such as waste of public money, precarisation of work and European border control. They identify responsible structures and actors in order to make it possible to hold them accountable. Additionally, they blog regularly on topics of European-wide relevance.
Collaborative cross-border journalism is more necessary than ever to explain a changing world. The success of this project heavily depends on sources, information and support from among the public.
