Using Customs records to track money – and how to push for more openness
Stephen Grey and Roman Anin used customs records to track down intermediaries and offshore profits – which they’ll explain on the example of medical equipment and of Dmitry Firtash – Ukraine gas. At the round table we’ll discuss how we can push for more openness generally on custom records.

TTIP – Analysing the secret deal
The trade deal between the US and the EU is a hot political issue. But it is also complex and secret and thus a particular challenge for journalists. We set up a single-subject news-website for TTIP to cover the topics in long term and in depth analysis.Our aim is to explore how to obtain information in an atmosphere where even minor minutes are kept secret. And we develop tools to explain the complex issues. We use network analyses and plagiarism software to shed light on lobby activities. We hope that our website will become the meeting point for an interested community and attract more material. TTIP is a genuinely European topic and information as well as publication should be considered in that light. In this workshop we want to share our thoughts on opportunities to break the secrecy of the deal and hope to develop a European network for journalistic collaboration.

Greece and Germany – The corruption portfolio
Kicking off a new cross-border project. Corruption is a financial and political problem in Greece. Since the beginning of the euro-crisis there has been a lot of criticism - especially from Germany. But in a strikingly high number of cases detected so far German companies are involved. Mapping of cases, industries, briberies and money flows - combining data journalism with an investigative approach.

With the input of data based on judicial files and criminal investigations in both countries, the project will address a series of queries with the ambition to challenge wide-spread perceptions:

What is the role of the banks? If they are the “circulatory system” of bribery schemes, where is this system physically located? Can it be mapped and visualized?
What have been the legal and the real world consequences for companies and individuals from both countries implicated in the bribery cases?
Bribery has routinely been treated as a purely financial transaction but what about the political factor?
Can we establish a correlation between Greece’s debt and deals involving bribery?
What about companies from other countries?
Programmers, Web-Developers or Journalists with ideas to expand the data with their own research welcome.
