What it takes for journalists to expose organized crime & corruption

On this edition of Your Call, veteran investigative journalists Drew Sullivan and Paul Radu will discuss how criminal networks illicitly funnel trillions of dollars around the globe.

Sullivan and Radu co-founded the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) to expose this unprecedented transfer of wealth, web of high-level corruption, and organized crime that fuels global inequality. Their project supports journalists and publishes their stories so the public can hold power to account.
