The Logan CIJ Symposium brings together a unique and powerful coalition of individuals with a single goal - the defence of freedom and democracy. Join the 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.
If you care about the future of individual freedom and democracy - join us.
The symposium is organized by the Center of Investigative Journalism (London) and funded by the Reva & David Logan Foundation (US). It is sponsored by SPIEGEL and the Rudolf Augstein Foundation.
The Wau Holland Foundation will be present at the event with its own stand — you are invited to visit us for a talk on the foundation and its goals: freedom of information, freedom of communication and informational self-determination.
Two board members of the foundation will be directly involved in the events: Andy Müller-Maguhn will moderate the panel “Tools and Tactics” on Friday between 2pm and 4pm; Bernd Fix will moderate the panel “Today’s Investigative Platforms” on Saturday between 11:30am and 1pm.
