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: Investigating Financial Cons (Eng)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The world's biggest thieves are not shady looking characters lurking in dark alleys, but con artists, bankers and executives who wear designer suites, work out of offices in the financial districts and dine with prime ministers and presidents. Some of the crooks don't even break the law. During this session you will learn how to mine the public record and investigate white-collar crimes.
