Project’s main objectives and results: addresses the lack of information on networks of power in Central America. We wanted to make it easier for journalists and researchers to investigate facts and foster transparency. aggregates and opens databases, automates visualizations, and showcases investigations related to beneficial ownership, influence peddling, tax elusion, wrongful public procurement, media concentration and hidden subsidies. More and more researchers are asking us for access to the data, since the platform was released two months ago. Thanks to Laberinto del Poder, the four Guatemalan biggest sugar companies have had to pay due taxes and their land ownership reassessed by government.
