The Logan CIJ Symposium brings together a unique and powerful coalition of individuals with a single goal – the defence of freedom and democracy. Join us at our second gathering to be held in Berlin on March 11-12, 2016 at bcc (Berlin Congress Center).
Over the years, facts like those revealed by WikiLeaks and Edward Snowden have made clear that we are all vulnerable. Our human rights are at risk.
For journalists, the disclosures impacted what we do and, importantly, how we do it. Remarkably, we also discovered allies we didn’t know we had.
Journalists offer “white hat” hackers a social and political context, and are specialists in the presentation and interpretation of facts for a broader audience. Hackers, experts in exposing and protecting critical evidence-based material, bring formidable skills and access to information in our increasingly data-driven society.
When joined by artists, whistleblowers, legal and security experts, these communities offer each other and the general public the basis for a highly charged and informed debate. The Logan CIJ Symposium seeks to strengthen these alliances and inspire people to challenge power. The upcoming Logan CIJ Symposium highlights the importance of high quality investigative journalism. It stands for the commitment to a world free of authoritarian invasions of privacy that creates fear and threatens free association.
We invite leading international experts: outstanding speakers will share stories about the latest technologies, legal issues, and corporate practices which affect personal and press freedom. Discussing methods and grounds for collaboration all over the world – what our presenters share may surprise you.
