Miguel Paz

Chile: Investigating Networks of Corruption

ICFJ Knight Fellow Miguel Paz expanded use of the Knight News Challenge-winning platform Poderopedia, which reveals links among business and political leaders. He brought Poderopedia to Venezuela and to other nations, creating a cross-border community that uses the platform. He introduced customized versions of Poderopedia in newsrooms and civic media projects. Paz also developed PeriodismoDeDatos.org, a much-needed Spanish data journalism toolkit and online community for sharing code, expertise and training resources. He expanded Hacks/Hackers Santiago and worked with this community to launch new chapters in Latin America. He held “radiothons” to introduce innovations in newsgathering and distribution developed in Africa that can be used by Latin American community radio.
