Cross-border projects have grown in popularity and sophistication. What are the lessons in working in these unique collaborations from the perspective of an individual reporter? How do you join an international collaboration?

What have been the strong points of each network in terms of planning, data sharing, and daily communication? How do you cope with cultural clashes and different ways of doing journalism? And how do you deal with the stress that each muckraker at some point has to face?

Elena Kuch/NDR (Germany), Yasuomi Sawa/Kyodo (Japan) and Minna Knus-Galán/Yle (Finland) have all years of experience of cross-border projects like Panama Papers, Implant Files and Troika Laundromat.
