Terror laws affecting journalism

As the state strengthens its powers to investigate investigative journalists, there's a talk on "Watching the Detectives" featuring freelance investigative journalist Shiv Malik - the subject of a "production order" forcing him to hand over source material to police. The investigative journalist Duncan Campbell (of Zircon and ABC trial fame) and Mischa Glenny, who reports on Southern Europe and organised crime, will join Shiv in discussing implications of recent counter- terror legislation for investigative journalism. The event is at 6:30 on Monday 3 November at the British Library St Pancras site, tickets £6/£4. You can book tickets for forthcoming British Library events here.
