DARK DATA, DARK MONEY & PUTIN'S RUSSIA: HOW BRITISH DEMOCRACY IS UNDER ASSAULT
Join us for an unmissable evening with Carole Cadwalladr and Luke Harding, two prize winning investigative journalists, whose recent work has dominated news headlines across the world. The evening will be hosted by journalist and writer Oliver Bullough.
In a series of articles for the Observer, Cadwalladr exposed the 'fake news ecosystem' of the right wing press. Through her investigations into Cambridge Analytica, she exposed the alleged malpractice of the Vote Leave campaign during the 2016 EU membership Referendum. She also drew links between Nigel Farage and the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald Trump and the Russian influences on that campaign. For this brilliant work, in June she was awarded the 2018 Orwell Prize.
Cadwalladr is joined by Luke Harding, award winning Guardian journalist, whose recent book Collusion: Secret Meetings, Dirty Money and How Russia Helped Donald Trump Win was published to huge acclaim at the end of last year. Between 2007 and 2011 he was the Guardian's Moscow bureau chief: the Kremlin expelled him from the country in the first case of its kind since the cold war. He is the author of A Very Expensive Poison: the definitive story of the Murder of Litvinenko, as well as books on Edward Snowden and WikiLeaks. In his most recent book, Collusion, Harding reveals the inside story of Trump's decade long relationship with Russia and how Russia if reshaping the modern world order to its advantage.
