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!

GLOBAL: Resources for Corruption/Crime Stories: OECD, Transparency Int'l, UNESCO and UNODC (Eng)

Investigative reporters working to expose crime and corruption have de facto allies, and those allies bring serious resources to the table.  However, the working relationship between journalists, international organisations and NGOs involves the same difficulties that appear in other alliances : different objectives, different timetables, different methods, and different ways of communicating. This panel aims first to get a clear picture of the work being done in international organisations from high-level actors, and how that work can contribute to investigative reporting. A second goal is to identify problems that arise when journalists work with these organisations, and how they can be resolved. Journalists with experience of collaboration with international organisations are urged to attend, critique and contribute.
