Miranda Patrucić, Bosnia, is the deputy editor-in-chief, Regional and Central Asia, of Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP). She joined the OCCRP in 2006 and now oversees regional editors around the world.
Patrucić worked on the award-winning "Plunder and Patronage in the Heart of Central Asia and The Matraimov Kingdom" series of stories, which led to protests that eventually brought down a government in Kyrgyzstan.
She has also worked on investigations that exposed billions in telecom bribes in Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan, uncovered hidden assets of Azerbaijan’s and Montenegro’s ruling elites; and revealed a €1.2 billion arms trade between Europe and the Gulf, which fueled conflicts in the Middle East. With ICIJ, she has worked on the Pandora Papers, Panama Papers, Paradise Papers and FinCEN Files.
Patrucić is the recipient of the One World Media 2022 International Journalist of the Year Award, the Knight International Journalism Award, the Global Shining Light Award, the IRE Tom Renner Award, the Daniel Pearl Award, and the European Press Prize.
She also runs a fellowship program that trains journalists on how to investigate and uncover corruption and “follow the money”.
