Conference: Making Transparency Possible

16. februar, kl. 09:00-16:45
PWYP Norway
Oslo Metropolitan University, Athene

Welcome to this research conference, in order to facilitate a dialogue between researchers educated and experienced in disciplines such as law, economy, accounting and journalism. 

In April 2017, the Panama Papers investigation was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting for “using a collaboration of more than 300 reporters on six continents to expose the hidden infrastructure and global scale of offshore tax havens”. Digital technology has facilitated such innovative global collaborative networks of mutual aid across countries and continents, seemingly in contrast to the dominating media market paradigm stipulating ever-increasing competition between journalists and media houses.


We wish to explore: 

  • How to interpret and understand complex information on finance and financial transactions, including the workings of intricate global networks of businesses and webs of ownerships, including those registered in tax havens?
  • How to understand the use of digital communication to build cross border networks of mutual aid between investigative journalists?
  • How to make digital communication safe, in order to protect sources (whistle-blowers) and the involved journalists themselves?
