Are you a journalist working on a sensitive and important story and need more assistance? You believe you did everything right, but you still want someone to fact-check your story or do a legal check? Or, have you been a subject of incident, threat, intimidation, or someone has filed a lawsuit against you?

Through BIRD, we can provide you with various types of assistance to make your important story bulletproof and secure your journalistic integrity. Assistance is free and on a needs basis. For now, we are only able to provide this to journalists and media organisations from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Moldova and Serbia.

We have a limited capacity to consider cases and incidents from Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Hungary.
