Is the US pulling ahead in the global fight against corruption and what does this mean for investigative journalists?

This week Unsafe for Scrutiny’s Project Director, Susan Coughtrie, spoke with Casey Michel, a US-based investigative journalist, and author of the upcoming book American Kleptocracy, to get his insights into recent, promising anti-corruption developments in the US and what impact he expects these to have on the global fight on corruption as well as the work of journalists like him who play a critical role in uncovering it.

A full interview is available on the Foreign Policy Centre website. This interview was produced as part of the Unsafe for Scrutiny project, which is funded by the Justice for Journalists Foundation.

Michel will be speaking at the Foreign Policy Centre’s upcoming event on 20 April –  Investigating Corruption: US versus UK – A Widening Transatlantic Divide? – alongside Tom Burgis, Investigations Correspondent at The Financial Times and author of Kleptopia: How Dirty Money Is Conquering the World’, Dr Sue Hawley, Executive Director of Spotlight on Corruption and Dr Tena Prelec, Research Fellow with the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Oxford, and part of the Global Integrity Anti-Corruption Evidence Project.
