Abstract

The Panama Papers has received the Pulitzer Prize in the Explanatory Reporting category. The International Consortium of Investigative Journalism (ICIJ) – the Washington D.C.-based organization that coordinated the project – interpreted this as a prize to collaborative journalism itself. The use of technology was its fundamental ally. Looking closer at how the Panama Papers came alive, through a network of more than 100 journalists and reporting partners around the world working in secret for over a year, opens a window into how collaborative and networked journalism work today. And what vital a role technology plays. This report by Clara Aguirre Hernando.
