Radiodays Europe: 

The Guardian´s inside story of the Snowdon case 

The inside story of the whistleblower Edward Snowdon´s disclosures of mass surveillance will be one of the topics at Radiodays Europe in Dublin 23-25 March.

Edward Snowdon's disclosure of the US mass surveillance of international phone- and internet communication was last year's largest scandal with far-reaching consequences for journalism, privacy and politics. Paul Johnson, deputy editor of The Guardian, which was the first and main publisher of the Snowdon material, tells the inside story about how his paper got onto the case, how they handled it, the political pressure they met and the further perspectives they see in the case.

Another unique story not to be missed is told by Lia Chawaf, Editor in chief of the independent Syrian radio “Rozana”, broadcasting from Paris to Syria.
