Description

Kleptocracies, organized crime, and criminal enterprises all depend on an array of support services they receive from a sprawling industry of lawyers, accountants, bankers, managers, and front men and women of all sorts. These "enablers" may run the businesses, wash the money, or simply provide a veneer of respectability.

In this panel we bring together three veteran reporters who have dug into the criminal services industry, from massive money laundering operations and offshore assets to Donald Trump's real estate holdings.

Description

The amount of dirty money circling the globe annually is estimated as high as $2 trillion -- about 5% of global GDP. Money laundering has infected the heart of the international banking system, with profits from organized crime, stolen assets from kleptocracies, corrupt practices, and more. Veteran investigators will give a guided tour of crime and corruption on three continents -- from media payoffs in India to resource theft in Africa to tax fraud in Europe.

Description

With physical attacks on journalists at near-record highs, it has never been more important to take prudent measures to protect yourself, your colleagues, and your sources. Data from journalism safety organizations show that most assaults and murders are committed against journalists covering corruption, crime and politics, not wars and conflict zones. 

Three veteran journalists from the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project, based in the rough-and-tumble Balkans, will talk about common-sense procedures to guard your safety. The workshop will include how to know if you're being followed or surveilled, best practices for meeting sources, and maintaining professional standards.
