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 the Food Industry (Eng, Port, Span)

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

This session will offer examples of investigative coverage of the global food industry, including tips on finding reliable data, documents, and people. Food is one topic in which nearly every global story is local, and the issues can be extraordinarily broad: genetic manipulation of crops and animals, organized crime's corruption of food distribution, market manipulation by agri-giants, unsafe additives, and more. The panel will also include a look at how energy and environmental issues are closely tied up with the food industry.
