While much of Russia’s media continue to be controlled by the state, the country has also developed in recent years a powerful strand of independent investigative journalism with a strong sense of corporate solidarity and large readership. 

In-depth investigative journalism guarantees transparency and criticism in society. Journalistic stories reveal issues that would otherwise remain hidden and give a voice to those who are rarely heard. BOZAR and KU Leuven invite four prominent journalists working in leading Russian and international media to discuss current challenges of investigative journalism in Russia and Europe together with VRT journalist and Russia expert Jan Balliauw.

This event has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 situation.
