Stephen Grey, award winning journalist, to teach interview techniques at BIRN Summer School

Stephen Grey is best known for revealing details of the CIA’s extraordinary rendition program. The first article published was in the New Statesman under the headline ‘America’s Gulag’.

Grey discovered how to track the movement of CIA planes allegedly used for rendition and published the flight logs in the Sunday Times.

Grey has contributed to stories pertaining to rendition and security for The New York Times, Newsweek, CBS’s 60 Minutes, Le Monde Diplomatique, and BBC Radio 4’s ‘File on Four’. He also presented documentaries on the CIA’s rendition program for Channel 4’s Dispatches Program and PBS’s Frontline World.

During the Summer School, Grey will use examples found in his researches to teach techniques for conducting investigative interviews and will explain how to apply them to television.

BIRN Summer School of Investigative Reporting 2012 was organized in cooperation with the Media Program South East Europe of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung and was supported by Open Society Foundations, OSCE Mission to Skopje, OSCE Mission in Kosovo and USA Embassy in Skopje.
