KEYNOTE: From LuxLeaks to trade secrets
In 2014 Edouard Perrin from French TV Press Agency Premières Lignes was in the core team of the ICIJ-LuxLeaks research team. He was the first to obtain the Lux Leaks data and other extremely important material. Since 2011 he has traced and uncovered tax avoidance and tax evasion. In 2016 and 2017 he had to appear before a court in Luxembourg along with the two whistleblowers of the Lux Leaks case. But in the meantime the EU has passed a controversial directive to protect trade secrets, which journalists in Europe must be aware of, if they want to cover business in the future.

Unveiling the migration business
The Migration Machine – does Europe care? On the night of April 9, 2016, around 500 adults and children drowned in the Mediterranean, the largest loss of life that year. Seven months later no official body, national or multinational, had held anyone to account for the deaths or even opened an inquiry into the shipwreck. A Reuters investigation identified many of the dead, the owners of the ship, showed how the brokers got in contact with the migrants on social media and proved it possible to map the brokers’ network and identify them. The investigation demonstrates the gaps in international law enforcement that make it easy for human smugglers to pursue their deadly trade in the Mediterranean. But it also shows what could be done if authorities chose to make a priority of investigating migrant deaths. Stephen Grey of Reuters explains the methods the team used for “The Migration Machine”. (followed by networking session on how to investigate migration). http://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/migration/#story/60

Dealing with legal threats in cross-border journalism in Europe - the EIC case
We see more and more cross-border collaborations – but the experience with and practice of the legal aspects of this new journalistic method are yet scarce. The recent EIC.network publication on Football Leaks has some interesting aspects to consider: A whistleblower to be protected – with contacts to one of the journalists on the team. An injunction against one of the media in one country – publish or not publish in the others? And what about libel tourism via – say – the UK or Ireland? The legal challenge in of crossborder collaborations is new and will not disappear. The question for this panel is how to balance the interest of freedom of expression versus the danger of being sued across borders. On the panel you’ll meet Dr. Sascha Sajuntz, in-house lawyer at Der Spiegel and author, as well as other lawyers (tbc) of the EIC.network. You’ll also meet William Bourdon, the French defence lawyer of Lux Leaks and other whistleblowers in international cases, Jan Oster, Dutch media scholar and author of a recent book about comparative media law in Europe and Jonathan McCullen from the London based internationally active Media Legal Defence Initiative. Speakers: William Bourdon, lawyer, Cabinet Bourdon, France https://cabinet-bourdon.com/en/equipe/, Jan Oster, lecturer, University of Leiden, Netherlands https://www.universiteitleiden.nl/en/staffmembers/jan-oster/publications, Dr. Sascha Sajuntz, in-house lawyer at Der Spiegel, Germany www.spiegel.de, TBC Rikke Laulund, in-house lawyer Politiken, Denmark, TBC lawyer / legal advisors at Mediapart, France and El Mundo, Spain, Jonathan McCully, Media Legal Defence Initiative, United Kingdom, http://www.mediadefence.org/users/jonathan-mccully

Bye bye, lone wolf - cross-border journalism pushed by media
"I used to hunt as a lone wolf or in a small pack, not anymore." Cross-border networked journalism is developing swiftly these years. This panel brings together three very different examples of networks: The EIC network initiated by a major news medium and working in a mixed team of media, investigative centres and freelance journalists; the Investigate Europe team of individual journalists who joined forces to develop adequate coverage of European affairs.

Editorial coordination across borders - which tools are necessary?
Cross-border journalism is spreading. Communication within the team is crucial, tools are plentiful… so which solution to go for? Does technology determine how we collaborate in a team? Do we have a centralised structure or decentralised? Which team members need to know what and when? How do we want to collaborate, and which tech solution supports our particular structure? At this panel you can meet tech- and team members of large networks such as ICIJ, OCCRP, EIC but also of newly started or ad-hoc networks such as Investigate-Europe and Migrants Files.

Investigate Europe - the making of a European team
It has been repeated for decades: The EU is covered mainly with strong national bias. This does not help the citizens. Two years ago a small group of journalists were so annoyed, they decided to do something about it. Within two years they set up Investigate Europe, a nine-journalists from eight countries team. The task: Cover complex European topics. Like any other start-up they sacrfiice oceans of time and some also have lowered their previous salary expectations. Recently they published their second large research, a third is on the way www.investigate-europe.eu
