With the explosive release of the Panama Papers last year, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists set a new standard for ambitious, cross-border investigative journalism. Working with an extraordinary 400 journalists in 80 countries, 100 media partners, and 2.6 terabytes of leaked data, ICIJ and its team changed the global debate on offshore money, hidden wealth, and taxation. This year, the team won a Pulitzer Prize for its work.  

ICIJ is not alone in managing state-of-the-art, cross-border projects. The Organized Crime & Corruption Reporting Project, which participated in the Panama Papers, has gained global notoriety for its extraordinarily-well reported exposés of mafia states, corrupt banks, and laundered money that reache around the world. OCCRP runs collaborations among some 40 investigative centers in Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America. 

Come hear editors and top reporters from both ICIJ and OCCRP talk about how they organize such complex projects, and what their secrets are to managing both tough investigations and even tougher investigators.
