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!

Spying on citizens is getting cheaper and easier, whether it conducted by petty cyber-criminals, private investigators -- or the United State’s NSA. This workshop will talk what what our technology and the websites we use is leaking about us to others, who is listening, and what you can do about it. We’ll draw on surveillance cases from around the world, and identify some of the trends, both in policy and practice, that need a closer look. The goal is to provide some ideas for investigative stories and coverage, as well as answer and ask questions about how the rise of the surveillance State effects everybody, journalist or not.
