The Teams Behind the Panama Papers: An ICFJ panel of investigative journalists discussed how this massive leak brought about a new era of cross-border collaboration among global journalists.

The panelists included Justin Arenstein, ICFJ Knight International Journalism Fellow and founder of the African Network of Centers for Investigative Reporting (ANCIR); Paul Radu, co-founder of the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), which covers 18 countries in Europe and the former Soviet Union; Miranda Patrucic, a lead reporter and regional editor for OCCRP; and Carlos Eduardo Huertas, director of Connectas, a network of Latin American investigative journalists from 15 countries.

The panel was moderated by former Al Jazeera America anchor Randall Pinkston. Nearly 100 media leaders and ICFJ supporters attended the event, which was hosted by Bloomberg News' Sonali Pathirana and Matthew Winkler, ICFJ Vice Chair.

At the event, ICFJ announced that Patrucic has won the 2016 Knight International Journalism Award, along with the Mexican investigative journalism team Aristegui Noticias, led by Carmen Aristegui. The awards will be presented at ICFJ’s annual awards dinner in Washington on November 14.
