Come and find out how technology can transform investigative journalism and civil society actions against crime and corruption. The Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) works as a global platform for deep data research and collaborative investigation.
With law enforcement and criminal investigations failing to work in the public interest, especially in relation to cross-border organized crime, illicit financial flows and networked corruption, we increasingly need shadow institutions to act on behalf of citizens. You can think of OCCRP as 'the people's NSA'.
This will be a chance to try out the tool at the heart of our work - Aleph. As implemented by OCCRP, it currently holds one of the largest collections of data on persons of interest worldwide.
