With the Panama Papers big in the news, we want to invite you to join us to explore, learn about and investigate into the global offshore tax industries. Using open data to track Big Oil, we will investigate how companies use tax havens to shift profits away from resource producing countries, use nominees directors to hide their real owners and obtain corrupt access to lucrative oil, gas and mining licenses.

The workshop will take place from 7pm to 9pm at the Open Knowledge Foundation offices, Berlin, and will feature speaker finance activist Brett Scott, author of “The Heretic’s Guide to Global Finance: Hacking the Future of Money”
