1 Whistleblowing platforms and investigative journalism: how can they contribute to transparency? /

2 Two whistleblowing platforms to unveil corruption, crime and wrongdoing IRPILEAKS & EXPOLEAKS

3 investigative journalism & whistleblowing tech do not substitute formal denounces to authorities, but they can foster democracy and a culture of transparency IRPILEAKS & EXPOLEAKS

4 IRPI’S MAIN INVESTIGATIONS

5 COUNTERFEITED OLIVE OIL

6 THE SUNTECH SAGA / ChinaLeaks

7 MAFIA IN GERMANY

8 confidential sources & leakers All three investigations had, at different stages, confidential sources and whistleblowers Example: the ex-killer of Cosa Nostra, confidential source

9 Why IRPILEAKS ●we would receive tips on gmail - dangerous! ●Italy has no culture of whistleblowing / omerta’ still rules ●Offshoreleaks / Chinaleaks by ICIJ - fostered more awareness and debate on better laws on tax evasion

13 INTERNAL MESSAGING SYSTEM

14 ISSUES IRPILEAKS / EXPOLEAKS ●why has the leaker sent a tip? ●gate-keepers: their role ●Data-storage and sharing Leak among IRPI’s reporters ●getting in touch with the leaker ●finding evidences, if not provided. Fact-checking. ●meeting with the leaker

15 LEAKS ON PUBLIC PROCUREMENT IRPILEAKS received leaks on Public Procurement but could not use them: leakers were scared and did not attach evidences. One was even on the Mayor of Venice (see MOSE). IRPI has no magic sphere.

16 BUT….

17 "ExpoLeaks: trasparenza anti-corruzione, con l’aiuto di tutti. La piattaforma permette di condividere in modo anonimo informazioni legate alla realizzazione di Expo Un team di giornalisti vaglierà le segnalazioni e svilupperà news e inchieste." 16/06/2014 EXPOLEAKS NOT JUST A LEAKING PLATFORM BUT ALSO A NEOLOGISM ACCORDING TO TRECCANI ENCYCLOPEDIA

18 ●was launched less than 3 weeks ago ●already raised 10% of its target on crowdfunding campaign ●went viral on social network raising discussions ●received already some leaks on public procurements EXPOLEAKS

19 It’s too early to estimate the impact on society of ExpoLeaks, but if the project works it would be the first successful experiment of ‘social hacking’ of Italy, bringing new ways for people to denounce sparking a retake of inclusion processes of society. Moreover, journalism could serve again as the “Fourth Estate”, providing also authorities with useful tips. EXPOLEAKS

20 ●Not all leaks are NSA-style, they can be simple stories of violence ●Leaker risks violence, psychological pressure, being sued, fired.. ●The journalist has to learn using technology and implementing data protection SOURCE PROTECTION IRPILEAKS / EXPOLEAKS

21 ●for the source and the journalist ●Corporate ●PA ●Organised Crime ●standard criminality Security after publication IRPILEAKS / EXPOLEAKS

22 THANKS FOR THE ATTENTION IRPILEAKS expoleaks.it
