Investigative journalists from across the world have repeatedly exposed how financial and legal systems – including those in the UK and its overseas jurisdictions – have been abused to facilitate corruption by their ruling elites, opaque businesses and criminal enterprises. They have often done this in the face of significant challenges to their own safety and security.
This free online event, held as part of the Foreign Policy Centre’s ‘Unsafe for Scrutiny’ project and supported by the Justice for Journalists Foundation, will launch and discuss the findings of a new report that examines the scale and scope of the pressures facing investigative journalists who work to bring financial crime and corruption to light around the world.
Speakers will include:
- Paul Radu, investigative journalist and co-founder of OCCRP
- Oliver Bullough, UK journalist and author of Moneyland
- Sarah Clarke, Head of Europe and Central Asia, ARTICLE 19
- Susan Coughtrie, Project Director at the Foreign Policy Centre
This event will take place on Monday 2 November 2020 at 4pm GMT.
