Working Grants - Chronological

Working grant - Bad Doctor: question marks over EU's doctor register

BERLIN - Free movement of labour within the European Union causes a significant and growing number of doctors working abroad. However, that also requires free movement of information, in order to secure patients' safety.


Working grant - International Offensive on Cord Blood Banking

ANTWERP - It’s the latest fashion in maternity hospitals. Mothers throughout the EU are encouraged to privately bank the cord blood of their newborn babies. But private cord blood banks are not free from criticism. On the contrary.


Working grant - In the Name of the State

LJUBLJANA - From 1991 until 1995, the Yugoslav Wars wreaked havoc on the Balkans. War crimes of all sorts and flavours struck the region with such fierceness and frequency that by the end of the 20th century Yugoslavia had been torn apart. One of the crimes committed was the illegal trade of arms by government officials of the countries involved, acts with which they infringed the UN arms embargo.


Working grant - Cold Case: EU Spending in Kosovo

PRISTINA - Up until nine years after the Kosovo War, from 1999 to 2008, Kosovo was ran by UNMIK (United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo).


Working grant - Property Corruption in Bulgaria

VARNA - Property corruption in Bulgaria is a minefield in which criminals and terrorists can hide their money while investors lose their life savings.


Working grant - Latvian Brides, Asian Grooms, British Isles

RIGA - Hundreds of women come to Ireland each year to marry non-Europeans – with the sole aim of securing visas for their new husbands. Most of them are from poor Eastern European states such as Latvia and Lithuania, where the offer of a few thousand euros is enough to lure women into such a “sham marriage”.


Working grant - The Dark Business of Soviet Art

KIEV - For more than 40 years Tatyana Jablonskaya's name and signature have been the pride of soviet realism's paintings. Her masterpieces, vibrant, popular scenes of a dream life in the USSR, illustrated communist propaganda appearing everywhere from reproductions in schoolbooks and political booklets to exhibitions in art museums all across the USSR. But now increasingly, original paintings of Jablonskaya's are disappearing, ever more forged versions taking their place.
