Panels and workshops will be available in languages as marked: English (Eng), Portuguese (Port), Spanish (Span). Plenary and showcase panels will be translated into all three. There will be streaming video available for all plenary and showcase panels and all those held in the RDC auditorium (C1). We look forward to seeing you in Rio!

The amount of criminal money washing around the world each year is estimated at $2 trillion, and it affects everything from health and human rights to democracy and national security. Investigative stories have always led to cases involving corrupt activities and criminal conspiracies. But the nature of corrupt and criminal acts is changing quickly with technology and globalization. How can investigative journalists stay on top of techniques to follow and expose crime and corruption in the 21st Century?

Here are three true experts who will offer tips and tools for following the money and tracking bad guys around the world. The panel will feature the official release by Paul Radu of Investigative Dashboard 2.0, a toolkit developed by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project and Google. Also featured: Xanic von Bertrab will share her experience investigating retail giant Walmart's bribery in Mexico, which earned a Pulitzer Prize this year; and veteran investigative journalist and teacher Sheila Coronel will share lessons from years of investigating corruption in the Philippines and worldwide.
