Investigative journalists want to make the world a better place. That is the point of what we do. But how, in a time of multiple distressing crises, can we do enough? How can we have the greatest impact? How do we keep going? New Zealand investigative journalist Nicky Hager specialises in the hard-to-document subjects, such as the military, the intelligence agencies, and the unseen sides of politics. He will take a wide view at this year’s Dataharvest, speaking about being investigative journalists in times of trouble.
Nicky Hager’s first book exposed the Echelon system – a world-wide US electronic spying system – and led to a year-long European Parliament inquiry. Six books have followed on war and war crimes, anti-environmental public relations, social media as a political weapon and the organised use of racism and prejudice as political tools. In recent years he obtained and shared a large tax haven leak.
