Investigation is Collaboration - Audio Episode

Tactical Tech’s 'Exposing the Invisible' project hosted a 5-day online conference to celebrate the people, initiatives, techniques and topics that can make investigation accessible to everyone willing to take the step. If you missed the conference, excerpts of the conference sessions are also available to listen to as audio.

Investigators talk about techniques and creative means that they use and what sources of data are available to almost anyone willing to uncover issues affecting communities locally and across borders.

Audio recorded during sessions of the Exposing the Invisible conference "Investigation is Collaboration" that took place online on 2 - 6 August 2021.
