Investigating in Conflict Zones

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

War is deception, as the Chinese general Sun Tzu said—and it’s left to investigative journalists to strip away the deceit. Who’s really commanding the battle, and what do they get out of it? Who’s funding and arming them? What back-door dealings are underway while the country is in turmoil? Amid the violence and chaos, it takes a cool head and a strong gut to make sense of it all, and unpick the details that are truly history-making.

We have three journalists who have years of experience in doing just that, from insurgent armies and martial law to open warfare, and they will explain on how to nail down what’s truly important.
