  • Investigando corrupción y crimen organizado con datos abiertos
    Los corruptos y las redes de crimen organizado se globalizaron desde hace muchos años. Ni el caso más pequeño de corrupción ocurrido en una aldea remota se escapa de involucrar al menos a un tercer país en la cadena de operación, ocultación de capitales y anonimización de los crímenes. Los periodistas también tenemos redes y centros de investigación transnacionales que se dedican a perseguir esas historias, pero antes hay que saber cómo hacerlo. Esta sesión explicará cómo utilizar bases de datos internacionales y datos abiertos para investigar historias transnacionales de crimen organizado. El taller incluirá ejercicios con datos en tiempo real.
