Join this in-depth workshop from Voice of America to learn how its Extremism Watch Desk, VOA Persian Service and News Center editorial units — which are not permitted to operate within Iran — use open-source intelligence tools and online apps and apply situational and technical awareness to vet user-generated Iranian content.
This session is designed for:
- Journalists working remotely with sources within Iran or other closed countries
- News leaders looking to build out their user-generated content verification capacities
- Anyone who would like to learn more about reporting under extreme governmental restrictions and scrutiny
