New Frontiers: Open Source Evidence
Event Details

Join us for our fascinating full-day conference, New Frontiers: Open Source Evidence. We will explore the different types of open source and user-generated evidence, including social media, electronic and rap evidence, their authentication and admissibility, and how they have been used in the courtroom globally and in the UK. Issues of accountability and disinformation will be examined, as well as the likely impact of AI on user-generated evidence in criminal proceedings.

Featuring keynote speaker Eliot Higgins (Bellingcat), and panel chairs Prof Yvonne McDermott Rees (TRUE project) and Her Excellency Judge Korner CMG KC. Panellists include representatives from the Global Legal Action Network, WITNESS, the Centre for Information Resilience and the International Criminal Court.
