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.
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.
European Data Journalism Network
The European Data Journalism Network (EDJNet) is a network of independent media organisations and data newsrooms producing and promoting data-driven coverage of European topics in several languages. The network brings together journalists, developers and policy experts. The network was set up in 2017. Currently, EDJNet has 28 members based in 14 different countries:
EDJNet works as a collaborative community, news aggregator, and learning hub.
- The content produced is available for free in several languages. It can be syndicated or reused by anyone within and outside the network under a few simple conditions.
- Original tools and curation services are provided to journalists, enabling any newsroom to take advantage of the opportunities offered by data journalism.
- EDJNet helps its members reach out to new audiences by translating all the articles in several languages and disseminating them through its channels.
- A collaborative infrastructure makes it easier for EDJNet members to analyse and explain relevant phenomena affecting the European societies.
