"Battle for Jerusalem"

On Dec. 6, 2017, President Trump declared that the United States would move its embassy to Jerusalem this year, upending decades of international diplomacy and inciting protests and violence across the Palestinian territories. Gianna Toboni reports on the aftermath of the announcement from the front lines and speaks with leaders and civilians on all sides of the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict about the imminent consequences of the upcoming move.

"A Face in the Crowd"

Amidst rapid advances in facial recognition technology, Elle Reeve travels to China, where the government and companies are rapidly deploying all manner of imaginable applications. VICE investigates the blurry legal boundaries of this technology and its potential to change the very nature of policing, both in China and the U.S.
