Last week, the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism released their analysis, “Gauging the Global Impacts of the ‘Panama Papers’ Three Years Later.” The research is the first comprehensive overview of the impacts of a global reporting collaboration. The Panama Papers grew to involve 500 reporters in nearly 90 different countries, resulting in 4,700 stories by the end of 2016. Using impacts self-reported by journalists over three years, researchers found that nearly 20% of countries tracked have made substantive changes and that one-in-five countries or international bodies have made substantive legal, regulatory or policy changes due to the reporting.
