Can Tourism 'Save' Haiti?
By Kim Wall and Caterina Clerici
Five years after the devastating earthquake, Haiti has been opening up to tourism. Many Haitians believe that tourism can revolutionise the country's economy, enhance infrastructure and create employment opportunity. But is this really true? Our grantees Kim Wall and Caterina Clerici set out on a quest to see who pays for and who profits from developments in tourism. Their findings will be published in Süddeutsche, The Independent, La Stampa and Libération in January 2016. In the meantime, they have been publishing some of their snapshots on travel magazine Roads & Kingdoms' Instagram.
Tales of the Missing Millions
By Laurence Soustras
Tales of the missing millions is a journalistic investigation which will look into the details of the cases of corruption involving development projects. It will describe how major multilateral financial institutions, such as the World Bank Group which is a major influence in development, have upgraded their diagnostic tools against fraud and corruption in recent years. Our grantee Laurence Soustras interviewed investigators, auditors and whistleblowers for this project. She will publish her findings on online platform De Correspondent and France24 in January 2016.
