With staff and contributors in more than 20 countries around the world, they operate in a unique field where advanced technology, forensic research, journalism, investigations, transparency and accountability come together. They don’t solicit or accept funding and contributions directly from any national government. Bellingcat is part of the Global Investigative Journalism Network and has won a number of prizes and awards, both by itself, and in partnership with other organizations.
