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!

Every international story seems to lead to China these days. Look at food, medicine, trade, tobacco, fishing, climate change, and international aid, just for example, and a Chinese angle soon becomes clear. How do we report accurately on the world's second largest economy, follow the trails of Chinese investment, and work with our colleagues in the People's Republic? Here are three extraordinary journalists who bring different but complementary perspectives to the issue: Ying Chan, who has helped pioneer investigative and data journalism in the region, working from her base at the University of Hong Kong Journalism and Media Studies Centre; Singapore native Reg Chua, who oversaw development of the groundbreaking Connected China, the interactive mapping of who runs China; and Ji Tianqin, part of a new generation of Chinese investigative journalists, whose team at the gutsy Southern Weekly produced an eight-part series helping expose the Bo Xilai case, one of China’s largest ever political scandals.
