Welcome, everyone! Here’s the program for the 8th Global Investigative Journalism Conference, (#GIJC13), scheduled for October 12-15, 2013, in beautiful Rio de Janeiro. It’s the first time we’re holding the GIJC in the global south, and we’re combining it with two other key events in journalism: the annual Latin America Investigative Journalism Conference (COLPIN), and the International Congress of ABRAJI, Brazil’s investigative journalism association. Panels and workshops will be available in languages as marked: English (Eng), Portuguese (Port), Spanish (Span). Plenary and showcase panels will be translated into all three. There will be streaming video available for all plenary and showcase panels and all those held in the RDC auditorium (C1). We look forward to seeing you in Rio!

In this session you will be given an overview of the most widely-used investigative journalism method in the world – the only method, to date, that combines conception, research, organisation and composition into a single integrated process. Story-based inquiry was developed within the GIJN, and designed to give teachers, reporters and editors a common language to describe and manage different aspects of the work. It began from the observation that while nearly any reporter can find  information, many cannot turn it into a story. By placing the story at the start of the process, we guide our research and reduce errors and waste. UNESCO, publisher of Story-Based Inquiry: A Manual for Investigative Journalists and The Global Investigative Journalism Casebook, will introduce these works at the session.
