OCCRP is a rapidly growing, global nonprofit media organization that is reinventing investigative journalism for the public good.

Founded by leading investigative journalists, OCCRP pioneered collaborative, cross-border investigative reporting; cultivated a global network of reporters dedicated to covering issues of crime and corruption; built the tech tools needed for data-driven, cross-border investigations; and partners with civil society to further the impact of our stories.
