CIJ Fellow Craig Shaw: Mafia in Africa Project

    CIJ Fellow Craig Shaw has been working on a wide-ranging project on the Mafia's infiltration into business interests both legitimate and illicit in 13 countries across the African continent. Findings from the project, which combined the work of journalists from six different countries, are now being published by German investigative non-profit CORRECT!V; African online newspaper The Mail & Guardian; and Italian newspapers L'Espresso and Il Fatto Quotidiano.

    The work was sponsored by grants from the Journalism Fund and the European Journalism Centre. Read more about the investigations on the Journalism Fund site -
