NEWSROOM WAR WINNERS

When wars end or conflicts wane international and media attention moves on. But post-conflict zones are often the scene of immense profiteering by organised crime and its regime partners. They are spaces where the fortunes made during the fighting become visible. Until recently journalists (and by extension affected communities) had few compelling means of making this struggle visible. This newsroom will enable international journalists to work in concert with local reporters and citizen groups to capture the reality of post-conflict land-grabs and exploitative redevelopments. Using open source data, on-the-ground testimony, documentary evidence and money trails we will reveal the transformation of urban areas in the wake of war. Pilot underway focused on Syria.
