Event description
Eliot Higgins, founder of investigative website Bellingcat, will be joining us for a special livestreamed event.

About this Event

Before founding Bellingcat, Higgins carved a new path in investigative journalism when he published his research into the Syrian Civil War, using hundreds of video clips from the internet to identify the weapons being used. Since its establishment in 2014, Bellingcat has exposed the truth and secrets behind some of the world’s biggest news stories, including the Salisbury novichok perpetrators and the downing of flight MH17 in Ukraine.

In his new book, We Are Bellingcat, Higgins tells the story of how a university dropout changed the landscape of investigative journalism and information gathering. Join him as he reveals how he galvanised a small team of mostly volunteers, without external funding, to hold power to account. He will be in conversation with Guardian and Observer senior foreign correspondent, Emma Graham-Harrison, and will also be answering your questions.
