Direkt36 is a non-profit investigative journalism center in Hungary with the mission to expose wrongdoings and abuse of power through fair but tough reporting, a kind of journalism that is vital for any democracy.
We provide the Hungarian and international audience with in-depth - often data-driven - accountability reporting that most of the Hungarian media outlets do not have the resources to pursue. Direkt36 is not part of the competition of news organizations covering daily events, which allows us to focus our resources exclusively on conducting systematic investigations. With this unique approach, which proved to be successful in Western countries but has not taken roots in Hungary, we can shine a light on social injustice, corruption, and other hidden problems of the society.
The job is exciting but it also poses a big challenge in Hungary, where press freedom and democratic institutions are in danger. We are actively participating in work of the growing international investigative journalism community and we publish all of our stories, which often have international implications, in English too.
