States and economic elites go to great lengths to hide their activities from public scrutiny and accountability but their actions nonetheless leave markings—paper trails of their affairs. These traces can be discovered and tracked by citizens; sometimes armed only with a search engine and sometimes by undertaking dangerous actions that risk their lives. This issue of Middle East Report is a study of these paper trails, and how they can be uncovered to hold states, corporations, communities and individuals accountable for crime, corruption, theft, malfeasance and injustice.
