Hi, my name is Christiaan Triebert. I'm an investigative journalist focused on conflict, security, and development.

open source investigation and verification

As a member of Bellingcat and Airwars, I provide worldwide training in news verification and open source investigation. My works has appeared in a number of outlets, including The New York TimesAl JazeeraDaily Beast, and Foreign Policy. In 2017, my work was awarded with the European Press Prize's Innovation Award.

workshops and speaking

I've had the honour to speak or give workshops about verification and open source investigation at many congresses, universities, and media organisations such as the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network, The Guardian Foundation, and ZDF. These presentations and workshops have brought me from Kenya to Kyrgyzstan and from the United Kingdom to Ukraine.

field work and travels

In addition to my digital research, I've travelled extensively: from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, and from the North Cape to the Cape of Good Hope. Besides, I've conducted fieldwork as a (photo)journalist in conflict areas such as Iraq and Syria.
