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 State of Global Investigative Journalism (Eng, Port, Span)

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

Four leading investigative reporters from around the world will share their thoughts on the challenges of, and opportunities for, investigative journalism in their regions. We will cover a wide range of issues, from safety and security (including online surveillance) to diminishing resources for investigative reporting. We will talk about innovative efforts to sustain watchdog reporting and debate how and when investigations make an impact. Is there an audience for muckraking? And how can that audience grow and be even more fully engaged? Join Mzilikazi wa Afrika of the Forum for African Investigative Reporters, Gustavo Gorriti of IDL-Reporteros in Peru, David Leigh of The Guardian, and Rana Sabbagh of Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism.
