Investigating war crimes using OSINT
Add to my calendar

This workshop will focus on how war crimes investigations in hard to access conflict zones are now possible using open-source intelligence, and helped international prosecutions. It will introduce the basics of international humanitarian law and the Geneva Convention, the types of war crimes that are possible to document using OSINT using examples from Syria, Libya and Ukraine, and explore the tools and technologies that enable this kind of investigative journalism. It will also include best practices for trauma-informed investigative journalism and how to avoid PTSD and end with a Q&A.

Trigger warning: Disturbing images, extreme violence, graphic content, blood, sexual violence, war/conflict and associated imagery.
