Masterclass: Open Source Intelligence and advanced research tools
The set-out for investigative journalism is finding and verifying information – and this day is all about making that easier and more efficient. You will learn new methods and tools and also how to go deeper and more thoroughly into the sources, using the techniques you already know.
You will get new skills in your online search and get tips on new spaces to explore in the deep web or in the world of databases. And we will have a friendly test of each other’s OSINT skills.

Masterclass: Access to information in Europe
Do you plan your tactics properly when using freedom of information legislation? Do you know how to get access to documents from local, national and European public bodies? And what about British documents and data after Brexit?
Learn from the most experienced when applying the freedom of information legislation in the EU and from other countries. In this Freedom of Information master class you will meet some of the journalists most experienced in using the access to information rules.
On the agenda is among other things:
  • The structure of FOI – and where we run into obstacles
  • FOI tactics – what to ask for, where and when
  • Access to the European institutions – the Commission, the Council and the Parliament
  • How to make the most out of FOI requests
  •  Selecting the best law for your research – international tactics

Masterclass: Dealing with digital harassment
Many journalists experience digital harassment because of their work. It ranges from harassing comments on social media to direct threats and coordinated campaigns to intimidate the journalist. It takes its toll: Many who are affected by this feel insecurity, stress, and depression, and it may in the long run lead to self-censorship.
The International Press Institute (IPI) has developed an extensive material to meet and deal with digital harassment over the last years, and we are very happy for the cooperation to present this to the Dataharvest participants in a masterclass, aimed at both individuals, teams and newsrooms.
This masterclass will teach you how to deal with the harassment. We will look at the typical types of threats, where they come from and when and how campaigns are organised. We will talk about your possibilities as an individual – how can you approach the problem analytically, understand the nature of the threat and make an action plan. How do you get in control, and who can you turn to for assistance?
Newsrooms should also have a strategy for dealing with online harassment of their staff and be ready to counter it. This should involve both the editors, the SoMe people, the IT staff and others, so the everyday environment is safe and there is a protocol in place when the attacks come, aimed at an individual or the newsroom as such.
