Nicky Hager will be speaking on Sunday at Massey as part of the Images and Fake News Panel Discussion.
Nicky Hager, born in Levin, works as an author and investigative journalist. He has written seven books about New Zealand politics, intelligence, public relations and military subjects.
His most recent books were called "Dirty Politics, how attack politics is poisoning New Zealand's political environment" (2014) and "Hit and Run, The New Zealand SAS in Afghanistan and the meaning of honour” (2017). Following the formation of the new Labour-New Zealand First-Greens coalition government, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Defence Minister Ron Mark announced in early November that they would hold an inquiry into the War Crime allegations raised by Hit & Run.
Hagar lives in Wellington and is the only New Zealand member of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.
