Your stories are international - your research should be too. That vital piece of evidence might be in another country, in another language, in a database you have never heard of before. The Investigative Dashboard helps you find it, both with databases and with personal help from skilled researchers. Come demo the Investigative Dashboard, a research tool of the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project developed in collaboration with Google Ideas.
Try searching the crowd-sourced database, put together by dozens of reporters and civic hackers, which contains over 800,000 company registration records and other related public records from more than 11 countries. Or explore more than 400 online databases in 120 jurisdictions where you can search for information on persons of interest and corporations worldwide. If you still cannot find what you need, submit a request to our professional researchers who can search external databases and official filings for evidence of corporate ownership or property holdings that cross borders. Take it for a test drive and it may lead you to that missing link in your investigation.
