Check out this video of the 8th Global Investigative Journalism Conference (GIJC13), held from October 12-15, 2013, in Rio de Janeiro. GIJC13 was brought to you by the Global Investigative Journalism Network (GIJN), the Brazilian Association of Investigative Journalism (Abraji), and the Institute for Press and Society (IPYS).
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."
