The Centre for Investigative Journalism (CIJ), based in London, is pleased to announce that its second Logan Symposium will be held in Berlin. After a first event in London, the second symposium will take place on March 11-12, 2016 at BCC (Berlin Congress Center).
The Logan CIJ Symposium gathers a unique and powerful coalition of individuals with a single goal – the defence of freedom and democracy.
Held over two days, the Logan CIJ Symposium brings together journalists and hacktivists to debate issues of surveillance, privacy and censorship. The two groups will explore common ground for collaborations in challenging power, particularly concerning the development of privacy tools to protect sensitive information and sources. They will be joined by legal and security experts, as well as artists, to inform and charge the debate about personal agency, the freedom of the press, privacy and government accountability. All will share important insights on spying, whistleblowing, forensics and the future of cooperative working and shared political action.
The Logan CIJ Symposium addresses an audience of concerned citizens media and press, activists, researchers, editors, hacktivists, technologists, security professionals, whistleblowers and students.
This event is made possible through the generous support of The Reva & David Logan Foundation as well as further substantial support by the Rudolf Augstein Foundation and will take place in collaboration with DER SPIEGEL, Germany.
Friday, 11 March 2016 – Saturday, 12 March 2016
