OpenCorporates for Journalists

    Exploring the corporate world through data.

    If there is one thing that Panama Papers proved, it is that anonymous companies and opaque jurisdictions allow money and assets to be kept secret, making it difficult for investigators to detect corruption, money laundering and organized crime.

    Course Outline

    In 2010 OpenCorporates was founded as an effort to identify where companies were based and how they linked across the world. It is now the largest open database of companies and company data, with in excess of 138 million companies in a similarly large number of jurisdictions. Their primary goal is to make information on companies more usable and more widely available for the public benefit, particularly to tackle the use of companies for criminal or anti-social purposes, for example corruption, money laundering and organised crime.

    This is a workshop that will enable people and organisations to harness the power of this huge pool of data, giving you the tools to explore the complex, connected world of corporate organisations.
