Crime & Corruption
September 27, 2019

K89, Der Spiegel



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.

French translation for this session is provided by CFI, the French media development organization.

It's no accident that GIJC19 is in Hamburg. Our host country is a global leader in investigative journalism. From Der Spiegel in the north to Süddeutsche Zeitung in the south, from strong public broadcasters like NDR to nonprofits like Correctiv, the field is deep, diverse, and full of world-class talent. And yet, investigative journalism in Germany faces significant challenges.

In this showcase panel, top German investigative journalists will analyze the current environment, how the press is meeting the challenges, and how Germany's investigative teams expect to shape the future.
