How To Expose a Tax Haven

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

It is a story that shook Europe. LuxLeaks exposed in a systematic way how Luxembourg operates as a tax haven in the heart of the continent helping multinational companies avoid billions of dollars in taxes. Team members explain how with the help of digital tools, data mining, and tax experts they transformed 28,000 pages of nearly incomprehensible accountancy lingo into stories that triggered a "tax storm" in Europe and beyond.

Also in this session: how to investigate a tax haven when you don't have a leak.

This session is done in collaboration with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).
