Fouad is speaking at
Transnational crime is estimated to be as much as a $2.2 trillion annual business. Like a shadow economy, it mirrors the legitimate world with businesses that range from smuggling drugs and wildlife to counterfeiting and human trafficking. The spread of kleptocracies -- criminal states run by corrupt governments -- has blurred lines even further between the underworld and the legitimate world. Here are five journalists from countries who have dug into criminal states and can offer a wealth of tips on how to investigate, stay safe, and follow the money.
Our networking sessions are just that: informal meet-ups where you can introduce yourself, talk about your work, brainstorm, and find colleagues to collaborate with. Here is a chance to meet journalists from around the world who are investigating organized crime and corruption and to share ideas.
You're in good hands with moderators Romina Mella of Peru's IDL-Reporteros, which has led reporting on the notorious Car Wash scandal, and Fouad Youcefi, chairman of Grav, Sweden's investigative journalists association.
