Event description

Description

War reporting is changing: reams of data and munitions expertise can now be brought to bear without ever setting foot in a war zone, while the access of officially ‘embedded’ reporters is heavily subscribed, leaving it to freelancers to take the huge risks necessary to get the story out. Analysis of data and social media opens up unprecedented new opportunities for warzone reporting, but does it also open journalists up to manipulation?

In this session, Investigative Practice asks how online research and on-the-ground reporting can most fruitfully work together.

Chair:

Chris Woods, Founding Director, Airwars.

Panellists:

Iona Craig, Freelance reporter and founder of the Yemen Data Project.

Anand Gopal, Journalist and author of No Good Men Among the Living: America, the Taliban and the War Through Afghan Eyes.
