Welcome, everyone! Here’s the program for the 8th Global Investigative Journalism Conference, (#GIJC13), scheduled for October 12-15, 2013, in beautiful Rio de Janeiro. It’s the first time we’re holding the GIJC in the global south, and we’re combining it with two other key events in journalism: the annual Latin America Investigative Journalism Conference (COLPIN), and the International Congress of ABRAJI, Brazil’s investigative journalism association. Panels and workshops will be available in languages as marked: English (Eng), Portuguese (Port), Spanish (Span). Plenary and showcase panels will be translated into all three. There will be streaming video available for all plenary and showcase panels and all those held in the RDC auditorium (C1). We look forward to seeing you in Rio!

Since June 2013, Guardian columnist Glenn Greenwald has broken a series of extraordinary stories on the scope of electronic eavesdropping by the U.S. National Security Agency and its allies. In this showcase talk, Greenwald will talk about his work uncovering the NSA's global surveillance programs, Washington's war on whistleblowers and the press, and what the new age of surveillance means to journalists worldwide. 

Greenwald writes on civil liberties and US national security issues for The Guardian. A former constitutional lawyer, he was until 2012 a contributing writer at Salon. He is currently working on a book based on his NSA reporting, which, according to its publisher, will “contain new revelations exposing the extraordinary cooperation of private industry and the far-reaching consequences of the government’s program, both domestically and abroad.”
