Nerves of Steel: How the EU gave carte blanche to health poisoners
European environmental rules, designed to protect EU citizens health, are largely decided by the very industries they are supposed to regulate. This is the main conclusion of an exclusive investigation conducted by a cross-border team of journalists and enriched with contributions gathered from different users through the collaborative journalism platform MobileReporter.info. The Italian daily “La Repubblica” has published the first of a series of text, multimedia and data features. This time-consuming project aims, particularly, to reveal evidence and consequences of the "law-restyling" made by the steel industry behind the scene, at the cost of citizens health and money.

Mafia in Africa
The Italian mafia has established a hidden but lethal presence in Africa. Its members own diamond mines, nightclubs and land, all with the complicity of corrupt regimes. Italian anti-Mafia authorities estimate that organised crime groups earn €26 billion a year in Italy alone. But the figure only scratches the surface of its economic power.  Mafia Inc. is more than ever a global business, infiltrating legitimate economies worldwide. And the extent of the empire is unknown. An international team of reporters from the non-profit investigative journalism centres IRPI and ANCIR (with the Investigative Dashboard Africa) partnered with the data analysts of QUATTROGATTI and the production room of CORRECT!V to uncover for the first time the Italian Mafia's grip on Africa. Supported by two working grants for independent journalism, the Innovative Journalism Grant of the EJC and Journalism Fund, the work took seven months, and included trips to Sicily, Calabria, Campania, Lazio, Lombardy, in Italy and South Africa, Namibia, Senegal and Kenya, in Africa. Ten investigative reporters from six different countries, one data-journalist and a data-scientist, three editors, one cross-examiner and a bunch of lawyers joined the effort in producing in-depth research into the Mafia's involvement in 13 countries. Mafia in Africa draws a bleak picture, and highlights the need for the international community to reforms its policies, to monitor and fight the economic infiltration by criminals and prevent the dire consequences on unstable African societies.
