Panama PapersNetzwerk Recherche Jahrestagung 2016

The biggest leak in history started with on  simple question: An anonymous source contacted SZ-reporter Bastian Obermayer with the words „Hello. This is John Doe. Interested in Data?“ One year later these few words became the „Panama Papers“. The massive international investigation involved 370 journalists from more than 100 media outlets worldwide. They analysed for month over 11,5 million files. The stories on the Panama Papers were simultaneously released worldwide in April. How does a cooperation between 370 journalists worldwide work? How can you make sure that no information about the investigation of the Panama Papers would come out before April? A peak behind the curtain of the biggest leak in history- the Panama Papers.
