Due to the Covid-19 pandemic this event will be a digital conference with online attendance. The conference is free of charge and open for all public.

There is a growing global consensus that the secrecy-havens—jurisdictions which undermine global standards for corporate and financial transparency—pose a global problem: they facilitate both money laundering and tax avoidance and evasion, contributing to crime and unacceptably high levels of global wealth inequality – Joseph E. Stiglitz and Mark Pieth

Secrecy mechanisms and facilitators of illicit financial flows hamper public understanding of financial markets. As a result, cross border investigative journalism has become vital in order to build public understanding of the consequences of secrecy in financial markets. However, investigative journalists researching illicit financial flows face a number of challenges. We wish to explore what can be done to facilitate investigative journalism of illicit financial flows.

This is the fourth research conference in the series “Making Transparency Possible - Interdisciplinary dialogues”. The conference brings together investigative journalists, economists, whistleblowers, bankers and others.
