ICIJ has redefined what investigative journalism looks like in the 21st century. We have repeatedly conducted journalistic collaborations so big, so visionary and so aspirational that they are unlike any others in history.
We have led the biggest cross-border journalism projects in history, including the Panama Papers and Pandora Papers. Our investigations have shaken the establishment and led to public protests, multiple arrests, sweeping legal reforms, and official inquiries in dozens of countries.
