billionaireswatch.org investigates how the ultra-rich influence politics.
Our project is non-partisan and non-profit.
This website is being developed by students and Prof. Peter Hägel within the “billionaireswatch.org” course at The American University of Paris (AUP). We thank all the students that have made contributions to it, especially:
Jade Ascencio, Shalise Barnes, Luka Ivicevic, Ellen Kitchens, Patricia Rehus, Jomana Saber, and Johnson Yoder.
In 2016/17, we received financial support from AUP’s Civic Media Lab.
The website is currently in its prototype phase.
