The Bureau Local, set up by the London-based Bureau of Invesigative Journalism, has pioneered a collaborative, investigative network within the UK, revealing stories that matter to communities across the UK. Its members include regional and national news outlets, local reporters, hyperlocal bloggers, technologists, community-minded citizens and specialist contributors. Correctiv Lokal in Germany and Citizen Matters in India are also using innovative ways to cover critical local stories. Come see what the future holds.

Three experienced journalists, who have reported on extremism in North America, Western Europe, and Argentina, share tips on how to investigate these groups.
