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!

War is deception, as the Chinese general Sun Tzu said—and it’s left to investigative journalists to strip away the deceit. Who’s really commanding the battle, and what do they get out of it? Who’s funding and arming them? What back-door dealings are underway while the country’s in turmoil? Amid the violence and chaos, it takes a cool head and strong gut to make sense of it all, and unpick the details that are truly history-making.

We have three great journalists who have years of experience in doing just that, on many warfronts, and will explain on how to nail down what’s truly important. Jon Lee Anderson (@jonleeanderson) of the New Yorker will talk about how to dig deep and develop a long-range story amid intense danger. Edi Pramono Stefanus Teguh from Indonesia’s Tempo Magazine will talk about how to penetrate the violent underworld in your own city. And Hamoud Almahmoud (@HamoudSy), editor of Aliqtisadi Magazine, will share tips on how to cover the world’s deadliest war, Syria. Moderator: Vivienne Walt (@vivwalt).
