Networking on Organized Crime and Illicit Trade

Great story projects, investigative techniques, and collaborations have come out of GIJN conferences since our first meeting in 2001. We know that good networking is key to this. To better connect people, we have arranged several informal networking sessions. Here’s a chance to talk about your work, meet your colleagues covering similar topics, share contacts and ideas, and find your next great story. 

Our hosts, Stevan Dojcinovic and Drew Sullivan, are two of the world's leading journalists covering organized crime. Through the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project, they have run cross-border investigations reaching into dozens of countries. OCCRP's projects have resulted in US$ 2.8 billion in assets frozen or seized, 55 criminal investigations launched, and 115 arrest warrants issued.
