Between 16th and 18th of May, we traveled to Sarajevo, Bosnia, and Herzegovina, for an annual regional gathering of activists, techies, policy makers, and journalists, which focuses on political accountability and new technologies. We hosted a session on the conference’s main stage where a fact-checker Verda Uyar, a journalist Nastya Stanko, and a data journalist Jacopo Ottaviani shared their perspective and experience with election-related coverage.
On the next day, we have hosted two Outriders Lab workshops: one on fact-checking and verification run by Marek Miller (Google News Lab), and another one on data Journalism and Agility run by aforementioned Jacopo.
Below, you can find the coverage of our session with the videos of the talks. If you’d like to read how the organisers described what issues we tackled, you can check their article about us here.
