Co-director Jeremy McDermott made a virtual presentation at a conference hosted by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). The ‘Sixth International Conference on Governance, Crime, and Justice Statistics’ was held in Seoul, South Korea from November 9-11. McDermott was a panelist on a session entitled “Crime, research, and investigative journalism.” He spoke about how InSight Crime collects and uses data in its daily news production and investigative work.
“Access to solid data is not only the best tool to expose crime and corruption, but our best protection against those who would seek to silence us,” McDermott stated.
McDermott was also interviewed for podcast The Index, created by the Global Initiative Crime Index, where he spoke about Venezuela and the involvement of state-embedded actors in illicit activities. Listen here.
