Gerard Ryle is ICIJ’s director. He led the worldwide teams of journalists working on the Pandora Papers, Panama Papers and Paradise Papers investigations, the biggest in journalism history. Under his leadership, ICIJ has become one of the best-known journalism brands in the world.

Reporters Without Borders has described Ryle’s work with ICIJ as „the future of investigative journalism worldwide“ when naming him as one of „100 information heroes“ of worldwide significance. (Source: ICJI).

Ryle is the first foreigner to head ICIJ. He is Irish and Australian.


Pandora Papers, Paradise Papers and Panama Papers constitute among the biggest investigations and revelations in journalism history, involving hundreds of journalists and media outlets across the globe. The impact of these revelations, focusing on corruption and financial transactions of the international political, economic, and cultural elites, has had major political impact in numerous countries.

How does this enormous investigation mechanism work? Who finances the investigations? What has been political impact of major revelations? Do citizens care? Does democracy profit?
