In July, while traveling in Moldova (two days after I was arrested in Transniestria) I had coffee with a stranger. We discussed lots of things, and the sum of the parts got me thinking about something new: Could new technologies be used add accountability to illegal migration contracts? I did enough research to convince myself it was worth writing about, so I pitched a story idea to VICE and dug deeper.
Last week VICE finally ran the story, and I think they did a great job embedding relevant videos and links. I’m proud of this one. Check it out in full here.
