How the New Mafia Really Works: OCCRP Journalists Discuss Organized Crime

How the Mafia Really Works Webinar


OCCRP Publisher Drew Sullivan will speak with veteran crime reporter Stevan Dojčinović about his experience investigating organized crime groups in a live OCCRP Discussion on Tuesday, March 28, 2023, at 16:00 CET/10:00 EDT.

Organized crime is everywhere. But in countries like Serbia, criminal syndicates are both globalized and are enmeshed with the state. This has created a very different mafia and blurred the lines between what is corruption and what is organized crime.

That makes investigating organized crime figures in the Balkans uniquely dangerous for independent journalists, since they cannot trust the authorities to protect their safety. Few people understand this delicate dance better than Stevan Dojčinović, the founder of the award-winning media outlet KRIK, which works closely with OCCRP on many investigations. 

Find out how the modern mafia really works from someone very close to the process. Dojčinović will share insights in a live OCCRP Discussion on:
