The Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) was created by Paul Radu and Drew Sullivan. It is a cross-border network of Eastern European independent media and non-profit organisations, counting the Rise Project and Novaya Gazetta (the newspaper Anna Politkovskaya – the Russian journalist murdered in 2006 for opposing Vladimir Putin – worked for) among its members. 

By publishing freely-accessible, groundbreaking investigative articles in English and Russian, the OCCRP hopes to help local populations realise the impact of organised crime and corruption on their lives. 

With a resource centre and data visualisations, as well as all the documents used to support the articles freely available, the OCCRP also has something of an educational mission: to inspire people to pursue their own investigations.
