The investigation of more than 124,000 documents leaked to the Guardian explores how Uber fuelled its global expansion through misleading police, breaking laws, exploiting violence against drivers and secretly lobbying governments
To facilitate a global investigation in the public interest, the Guardian shared the data with 180 journalists in 29 countries via the International Consortium of Investigative Journalism (ICIJ). The investigation was managed and led by the Guardian with the ICIJ.
The data consist of emails, iMessages and WhatsApp exchanges between the Silicon Valley giant’s most senior executives, as well as memos, presentations, notebooks, briefing papers and invoices. The records cover 40 countries and span 2013 to 2017, the period in which Uber was aggressively expanding across the world.
