Event description

Description

From open-source digital mapping to forensic architectural methods to the kind of data journalism which can aggregate and divine patterns in the ether, what might be called forensic journalism - the application of methods drawn from science, technology, new media and professional expertise - is rapidly gaining ground.

In this session, Investigative Practice discusses the issues which arise for investigation when gifted open-source "citizen journalists” work with professionals, and when both work with traditional newsrooms and NGOs.

Chair:

James Harkin, Director, The Centre for Investigative Journalism

Panellists:

Eyal Weizman, Founding Director, Forensic Architecture

Eliot Higgins, Founder of Bellingcat
