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 SHOWCASE: The Futures of Investigative Journalism (Eng, Port, Span)

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

In a time of disruption and change in the journalism profession, there may be no one future or form for investigative reporting. It may be more traditional, based on interviews and observation. Or it may be digital, more data driven, or make more use of social media and use new devices for news gathering and presentation. These panelists -- drawn from Costa Rica, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, and the United States, will share their ideas of what is next for global investigative journalism.
