About us

Átlátszó Erdély (meaning: Transparent Transylvania) is an investigative journalism project published by Átlátszó Erdély Association (official Romanian name: Asociaţia „Atlatszo Erdely Egyesulet”). Our goal is to contribute to a transparent, accountable and democratic Hungarian community of Transylvania. This can not be achieved without independent media that is critical towards all-time political power.

A guarantee of our independence is that we are not backed by any political or economic interest groups. The founders/board members of the association are journalists, the financial support for our operating costs comes partly from international grants for investigative journalism and partly from the donations of our readers.

We publish a report of our income and expenses, as well as our results every year. Read our 2019 report here (in Hungarian).
