Event Details

We Are Bellingcat tells the inspiring story of how a college dropout pioneered a new category of reporting and galvanized citizen journalists-working together from their computer screens around the globe-to crack major cases, at a time when fact-based journalism is under assault from authoritarian forces.

Bellingcat's Eliot Higgins and Nick Waters will be interviewed by Carole Cadwalladr at Frontline Club as they discuss the tools Bellingcat investigators use and dig deep into some of the team's most important investigations - the downing of flight MH17 over Ukraine, Assad's use of chemical weapons in Syria, the identities of alt-right protestors in Charlottesville - with the drama and gripping detail of a spy novel.
