Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP)

Bosnia and Herzegovina

The Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) is a consortium of more than 24 non-profit investigative centers, scores of journalists and several major regional news organizations stretching from Eastern Europe to Central Asia. We teamed up in 2006 to do transnational investi-gative reporting and promote technology-based approaches to exposing organized crime and corrup-tion worldwide.

Our goal is to help people better understand how organized crime and corruption affect their lives. OCCRP publishes in-depth investigative stories as well as the latest news on organized crime and corruption activities in the region.

We have quietly become one of the world’s largest investigative reporting organizations, generating more than 60 cross-border investigations per year. Our websites inform more than 6 million readers and viewers every month, and 200 million other readers and viewers have access through legacy media which publish our work. The ever-widening impact of OCCRP stories demonstrates that when enough people possess the right kind of information they can bring about the right kind of change.

OCCRP also trains reporters and partners in advanced journalism techniques, builds practical, high-use tools used to improve the efficiency of reporting and publishing and is actively reinventing in-vestigative journalism to be more interactive, more effective, more impactful and relevant to readers.
