Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The massive Panama Papers leak exposes in unprecedented detail how the world’s rich and powerful hide money offshore. It’s a story far too big for one news organization, so more than 300 journalists in 78 countries worked together in the largest-ever journalistic collaboration to bring the initial stories to light.
