From FOIA to Front Page: Unpacking an investigation into airstrike civilian casualties
Room PSH314, Professor Stuart Hall building, Goldsmiths, University of London
Thu 9 February at 6:30pm
In August 2015, US reporter Joseph Trevithick of War is Boring obtained an unexpected document as part of bundle of CENTCOM Freedom of Information releases, which related to the US-led Coalition's air war against so-called Islamic State. The previously secret file identified 45 incidents in Iraq and Syria which CENTCOM had assessed and investigated for possible civilian casualties - an unusual 'live' document to emerge during a conflict.
The event is free and open to all.
