OPENING PLENARY: Freedom of Expression in Crisis (Eng, Port, Span)

The percentage of the global population living in countries with a free press has declined to just 14 percent, the lowest level in more than a decade, according to Freedom House. Repressive governments now broadly employ technology to spy on, censor, and disrupt those online. Meanwhile, journalists around the world are being murdered and imprisoned at near-record rates. And the killings and jailings are but a fraction of the damage being done. Beatings, kidnappings, and threats are far more numerous, and can be just as effective at silencing the press.

On this panel, a distinguished group of officials from the United Nations and the Organization of American States will describe the growing pressures against freedom of expression worldwide, the challenges and opportunities facing a free and independent press, and the best strategies of how to respond.

GLOBAL: Covering National Security (Eng)
What hurdles does a journalist face when covering national security and how does one deal with them? National security stories are among the most challenging in journalism. Sources can lose jobs, clearances, and put themselves in legal and physical danger. Journalists face extraordinary secrecy and at times a striking lack of accountability. These three panelists bring extensive and diverse experience in investigating intelligence agencies in the United States, Europe, and South Asia.

GLOBAL: Investigating International Business: Sources and Documents (Eng)
As Deep Throat told Bob Woodward in All the Presidents' Men, "Just... follow the money." In this age of globalization and billion-dollar scams, that means knowing how to background a business and track its activities around the world. Here are three people who can help, experts in following trails -- of money, people, and documents. Good hunting.

Romanian reporter Paul Radu will talk about how offshore and onshore havens enable both organized crime and some business corporations to conduct illegal business. He will share thoughts on the Magnitsky case, the biggest fraud case in present Russia, as an example of an intersection between the legitimate business world and the criminal money laundering world. He will show the Investigative Dashboard tool that enables reporters follow the money across borders.

Marty Steffens, who teaches business and financial journalism at the University of Missouri, and is an international trainer, will demonstrate a series of records such as shipping documents, world banking documents, tender website and US records that may open the way to transnational investigations. She'll also talk about continuing doubt over the accuracy of some national data, particularly from China.

GLOBAL: Professors Track: Papers on Investigative & Data Journalism (Eng)
Professor James Hollings presents a paper on the role of emotion when whistle-blowers decide to go public with their stories, proposing a theoretical explanation baed on the Interative Reprocessing Model.

Rosemary Armao of the State University of New York at Albany presents a paper on assessing efforts to promote and support investigative journalism at four investigative centers around the world, noting both successess and failures.

Anya Schiffrin of Columbia University in New York City presents a paper on the ways that journalists have done and do investigative reporting on the extractive sector such as mining and oil where are innumerable instances of outright corruption as well as bad practices, where countries fail, for instance, to garner for themselves the full value of their resources and/or when the revenues raised are not used for public purposes in ways that they should. There are more complex stories, exposing how well-intentioned actions can have unintended adverse effects  Such reporting is necessary if the media is to fulfill the role of the watchdog, particularly needed in this complex industry.

Jane Regan, professor at the State University of Haiti, presents a paper on the new and innovative techniques that journalists used to monitor and investigative the billions of “reconstruction” dollars that followed offered humanitarian agencies and international businesses the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. She outlines the creation of her efforts and that of an online “alternative” news agency and a community radio training and support association to launched the Haiti Grassroots Watch partnership.

With the World Cup and Olympics coming to Brazil, match fixing scandals spanning the globe, widespread doping, and plenty of fraud and waste in stadium contracting, there’s no shortage of hard-hitting stories to do on the sports industry. Here are three top experts on digging into the business and corruption of sports. If you haven't heard the irrepressible Andrew Jennings, now's the time to hear him go after game-fixers and bribe-takers around the world. Rob Rose, of the Sunday Times in Johannesburg, will show how the South African press dealt with scandals involving the World Cup and Olympics.

GLOBAL: Investigating in Conflict Zones (Eng)

War is deception, as the Chinese general Sun Tzu said—and it’s left to investigative journalists to strip away the deceit. Who’s really commanding the battle, and what do they get out of it? Who’s funding and arming them? What back-door dealings are underway while the country’s in turmoil? Amid the violence and chaos, it takes a cool head and strong gut to make sense of it all, and unpick the details that are truly history-making.

We have three great journalists who have years of experience in doing just that, on many warfronts, and will explain on how to nail down what’s truly important. Jon Lee Anderson (@jonleeanderson) of the New Yorker will talk about how to dig deep and develop a long-range story amid intense danger. Edi Pramono Stefanus Teguh from Indonesia’s Tempo Magazine will talk about how to penetrate the violent underworld in your own city. And Hamoud Almahmoud (@HamoudSy), editor of Aliqtisadi Magazine, will share tips on how to cover the world’s deadliest war, Syria. Moderator: Vivienne Walt (@vivwalt).

GLOBAL: The Business of Investigative Reporting: What Models Work? (Eng, Port, Span)

Investigative journalism has been through a tough decade, reeling from lack of advertising, a global recession, and changing technology. What are the successful economic models to support in-depth investigations by the news media? Are data-centric projects the answer? A move to a nonprofit model? Niche publishing? State subsidies? A distinguished panel of veteran editors looks at the alternatives.

GLOBAL SHOWCASE: Covering 21st Century Corruption and Organized Crime (Eng, Port, Span)

The amount of criminal money washing around the world each year is estimated at $2 trillion, and it affects everything from health and human rights to democracy and national security. Investigative stories have always led to cases involving corrupt activities and criminal conspiracies. But the nature of corrupt and criminal acts is changing quickly with technology and globalization. How can investigative journalists stay on top of techniques to follow and expose crime and corruption in the 21st Century?

Here are three true experts who will offer tips and tools for following the money and tracking bad guys around the world. The panel will feature the official release by Paul Radu of Investigative Dashboard 2.0, a toolkit developed by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project and Google. Also featured: Xanic von Bertrab will share her experience investigating retail giant Walmart's bribery in Mexico, which earned a Pulitzer Prize this year; and veteran investigative journalist and teacher Sheila Coronel will share lessons from years of investigating corruption in the Philippines and worldwide.

GLOBAL: Investigating Poverty and Development (Eng, Port, Span)

Millions are made by the agencies and institutions who say they are doing "development" and "humanitarian aid" or "helping the poor." They can be just as corrupt or misguided as crooks and scammers. But how can journalists in the so-called "beneficiary" countries look into these oft-powerful organizations, who portray themselves as not-for-profit benefactors? What can a journalist do when there is little documentation or no open records laws? How to make arguments that pit the public interest against what some say is "development"? 

The panel features journalists Daniela Arbex of Brazil, Lafontaine Orvild of Haiti, and Malou Mangahas of the Philippines. The group will talk about a series of major investigations: one which exposed a "holocaust" at a gruesome hospital-turned-prison and death camp, and another which shed light on how, with the help of the World Bank and the Haitian government, Canadian and U.S. companies are poised to exploit most of Haiti's mineral wealth. In both cases, the victims were or are the poor, the exploited and the cast-offs, those with the least access to journalists and to media outlets. Mangahas will speak about her work at the pioneering Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism investigating corrupt foreign assistance and government contracting. As they talk about they work, the panelists will share some of the tricks, tactics and techniques they used, and they will also make the case for investigative journalism that looks into the so-called "good works" of the powerful institutions and agencies working in the "global South."

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.

GLOBAL: Resources for Corruption/Crime Stories: OECD, Transparency Int'l, UNESCO and UNODC (Eng)
Investigative reporters working to expose crime and corruption have de facto allies, and those allies bring serious resources to the table.  However, the working relationship between journalists, international organisations and NGOs involves the same difficulties that appear in other alliances : different objectives, different timetables, different methods, and different ways of communicating. This panel aims first to get a clear picture of the work being done in international organisations from high-level actors, and how that work can contribute to investigative reporting. A second goal is to identify problems that arise when journalists work with these organisations, and how they can be resolved. Journalists with experience of collaboration with international organisations are urged to attend, critique and contribute.

Here are four of the region's best journalists who will describe the evolution of the techniques and methods in Latin American investigative reporting. Three of them are winners of the prestigious Maria Moors Cabot Prize, the oldest international journalism award. All have investigated different schemes of polítical and criminal mafias. Mauro Konig, from Brazil's Gazeta do Povo, was forced to leave the country for a while in January after receiving threats. IPYS Director Ricardo Uceda, from Perú, is a true expert on the region's investigative journalism and has personally contributed to its expansion. Gerardo Reyes, from Colombia and working in the US for Univision, is a brilliant investigator. And Daniel Santoro, from Argentina's Clarín, is a master muckraker who teaches courses on investigative journalism across the region.

El panel ofrece una mirada de las investigaciones latinoamericanas más notables de los últimos 10 años, teniendo como insumo principalmente los trabajos ganadores del Premio Latinoamericano de Periodismo de Investigación. Se trata de una revisión regional, haciendo un repaso por Brasil (Mauri Konig), Argentina (Daniel Santoro)y el resto de Latinoamérica (Ricardo Uceda y Gerardo Reyes).

GLOBAL: Secrecy for Sale: Inside ICIJ's Offshore Leaks Project (Eng, Port, Span)
On April 4, 2013, news outlets across the world began publishing stories that exposed the secret offshore dealings of powerful international figures, including top politicians, billionaires, known criminals and oligarchs. The articles were based on a cache of 2.5 million leaked confidential files obtained by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists – the largest stockpile of offshore information ever made available to a media organization. The investigation – called Offshore Leaks by the public – quickly ignited reactions around the world, sparking official probes, high-profile resignations and a renewed sense of urgency among world leaders that this is the time to rein in offshore abuses.

This panel will take you inside the Offshore Leaks investigation, a massive and ongoing cross-border reporting effort that has involved more than 115 reporters in 60 countries. It’s considered one of the largest collaborations in journalism history. ICIJ director Gerard Ryle will talk about the origins of the data and how he handled sources and dealt with media organizations all over the world; ICIJ deputy director Marina Walker Guevara will discuss how the team cracked 260 gigabytes of financial information and coordinated reporting in dozens of countries; and CBC reporter Frederic Zalac will talk about how his team found and investigated stories relevant to Canada in the rather intricate leaked document trove.

We’ll draw on surveillance cases from around the world, and identify some of the trends, both in policy and practice, that need a closer look. The goal is to provide some ideas for investigative stories and coverage, as well as answer and ask questions about how the rise of the surveillance State effects everybody, journalist or not.

GLOBAL: Sports Collaboration Workshop (Eng)
Limited Capacity seats available

From its first gathering in Copenhagen in 2001, the Global Investigative Journalism Conference has been a catalyst for collaboration. Journalists from around the world have come to network, brainstorm, and ultimately work together on stories that have made headlines around the world. Sometimes the stories are inspired by panelists who arrive full of tips and leads. Other times it happens in the hallways and the bars, over drinks or coffee.

This year, for the first time, we're adding a bit of structure to all the brainstorming. We'll be running a series of collaboration workshops led by experienced editors with proven records for getting award-winning stories off the ground. 

With the World Cup and Olympics coming to Brazil, match fixing scandals spanning the globe, widespread doping, and plenty of fraud and waste in stadium contracting, there's no shortage of hard-hitting stories to do on the sports industry. Leading the sports workshop will be Andy Lehren of The New York Times and Rob Rose of South Africa's Sunday Times.

Our editors will start with a brainstorming session, and then, as needed, will break up the workshop into groups to focus on individual stories and projects.

RESOURCES: The workshop team has assembled an extensive list of resources, including the best Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE) tipsheets and contest entries on international sporting events and doping. Also, you can find a historic Olympic medal data.

GLOBAL SHOWCASE: Investigating Health Issues (Eng, Port, Span)
Corruption of the health care system puts millions of lives in peril. Reporters from Nigeria and Venezuela look at how multiple sources of fraud, extortion, malfeasance, and apathy hobble national programs and waste government funds. And the Fortune series, Dirty Money, exposes lax oversight which allowed a corrupt drug maker in India to export a poor quality generic drug sold around the world.

GLOBAL: How Other Investigators Do It (Eng)

Journalists are part of a larger ecosystem of investigators who track and document wrongdoing. We’re familiar with the investigative journalist’s toolkit. But how do other investigators prove wrongdoing? And can journalists learn from them? Learn from Patrick Alley how Global Witness digs into corruption. Jim Mintz will share tips from the world of private investigators and Manfred Redelfs will talk about how Greenpeace uncovers wrongdoing that harms the environment.

GLOBAL: Producing TV Investigations (Eng)

In this session, Hanson, Swisher and Zamost will cover the entire track of producing investigative stories for television. The topics will range from tips for pre-publication quality control (a methodological approach to fact checking and bulletproofing the story. Participants will get tools to avoid being the subject of investigations themselves) and production in the field, to successful collaboration and turning what is essentially a great print investigation into compelling television. While showing their own clips (Zamost will for instance show parts of "Rehab Racket," a recent yearlong investigative series that CNN did with The Center for Investigative Reporting which aired on AC 360), speakers will explain some of the challenges, detail their paper trail, share tips on surveillance, and on how to get insiders to talk and track down key characters. This panel could be summarized as showing the anatomy of a TV investigation.

GLOBAL: Narco-mafias (Eng)
We wonder how the drug gang in the TV show “Breaking Bad” would have fared if our sharp-eyed investigative journalists had been around when they were making millions from cooking crystal meth. Instead, they got away with horrific violence and made it big. The global drug trade is estimated to worth hundreds of billions of dollars a year. Come hear how these three journalists have tracked illicit drugs and the druglords’ fortunes, and what’s involved in trying to do that reporting. Ricardo Ravelo (@RRavelo27) of Mexico’s Variopinto Magazine will share lessons learned from years investigating the Mexican drug cartels, including the Zetas franchise, subject of his new book. Stevan Dojcinovic (@StevanOCCRP ) of the Center for Investigative Journalism in Serbia will show how to track illicit funds, and draw the links. And Allen Yero Embalo (@ayembalo) will outline how he tracked multibillion-dollar cocaine shipments from Latin America to his tiny native Guinea Bissau in West Africa, and paid a heavy price for his work.

GLOBAL LUNCH SHOWCASE: Surveillance and Secret Government (Eng, Port, Span)

Since June 2013, Guardian columnist Glenn Greenwald has broken a series of extraordinary stories on the scope of electronic eavesdropping by the U.S. National Security Agency and its allies. In this showcase talk, Greenwald will talk about his work uncovering the NSA's global surveillance programs, Washington's war on whistleblowers and the press, and what the new age of surveillance means to journalists worldwide. 

Greenwald writes on civil liberties and US national security issues for The Guardian. A former constitutional lawyer, he was until 2012 a contributing writer at Salon. He is currently working on a book based on his NSA reporting, which, according to its publisher, will “contain new revelations exposing the extraordinary cooperation of private industry and the far-reaching consequences of the government’s program, both domestically and abroad.”

GLOBAL: ICIJ Workshop: Using the Leaked Offshore Documents (Eng)

On June 14, 2013, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) released a web application with ownership information on more than 100,000 entities incorporated in 10 offshore jurisdictions, partially stripping away the secrecy associated to tax havens. The ICIJ Offshore Leaks Database reveals the directors, shareholders and when possible, beneficial owners of secret companies in the British Virgin Islands, Cook Islands and Singapore, among other offshore locales. Three members of the cross-border team that built this application will explain how they brought it to life –starting with a maze of leaked databases with no roadmap and no explanation and turning it into an online database that allows users to explore the offshore networks of tens of thousands of people around the world. They will also explain how to best use this tool and how to combine it with the real treasure trove of the Offshore Leaks investigation: 2.5 million files that already have produced hundreds of stories worldwide.

GLOBAL: Environmental Collaboration Workshop (Eng)
Limited Capacity seats available

GIJC13 will host some of the world’s top journalists writing on climate change, the oil industry and mining, rainforest destruction, toxic chemicals, and more. This workshop will be led by data journalism expert Nils Mulvad of Investigative Reporting Denmark and veteran environmental reporter Mark Schapiro, author of Exposed: The Toxic Chemistry of Everyday Products.

RESOURCES: The workshop team has assembled an extensive list of resources to help fuel the discussion. Here are more than 30 databases, resources, and story ideas to get you started

A NOTE FROM OUR GUEST EDITORS: 

Hello GIJC participants,

The environment is rich with possibility for trans-national investigations—money, power and environmental damage, of course, show no respect for national frontiers.

We’ve compiled a list of some potentially valuable sources of information on environmental topics. This list is divided broadly into sources relating to climate change and the battle underway for cleaner energy; toxic chemicals impact on the environment and human health; the mining and oil industries; the illegal trade in wildlife and logging; and fracking.

You are invited to the upcoming workshop on transnational environmental collaborations, where we hope this document kick-starts some thinking on future investigations. The aim of the workshop is to have a discussion on these and related topics, to see where the most fruitful collaborations may lie. We are the facilitators of the discussion amongst us all: Our hope is that this list of sources provides not only some valuable future links for your investigations, but also may suggest some broad areas for collaborative investigations in the future.

We consider this a list to built upon and developed over time, starting with the upcoming workshop, and to act as a jumping off point for far more detailed discussion—based on your own experiences, interests, hunches.  Hopefully, we’ll identify some common areas of journalistic interest, and set the process in motion to kick off some investigations.

Look forward to seeing you in Rio!

Solidarnosc,

Nils Mulvad & Mark Schapiro

GIJC Blues Bash
Join us for some late night fun at a no-host party at Rio's Teatro Odisséia, where a blues bash will be played by GIJN's own all-journalist R&B band, The Muckrakers.

This will be the fourth Global Investigative Journalism Conference played by The Muckrakers, who came together at a boisterous jam in the basement bar of a Lillehammer, Norway, hotel in 2008. They have since played at GIJCs in Geneva and Kiev, and now they reunite in Rio -- backed by a Brazilian rhythm section. Come have a drink and dance as The Muckrakers steam through hits by the greatest names in R&B and soul: Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Martha Reeves, Elmore James, Wilson Picket, Junior Walker and more.

Drawn from four countries, The Muckrakers showcase the talents of three veteran musicians – a beautiful singer from Macedonia, a harmonica player from Chicago, and an American expatriate slide guitar player from Paris.

The Muckrakers are:

Ana Simonovska, vocals and rhythm guitar

Powerhouse singer Ana Simonovska’s musical skills were honed at the Conservatory and Faculty of Music Arts in her native Skopje, Macedonia. After graduation she played and recorded her own songs with a Macedonian rock band before going solo. After years as a TV journalist in Skopje, she now lives with her husband in Islamabad, Pakistan. 

Mark Lee Hunter, slide guitar and vocals
Ace guitarist Hunter has toured with Fontilla Timmons, studied with Bob Brozman, learned licks at the feet of John Lee Hooker, performed with musicians like the great Mexican guitarist Gil Gutierrez, and recorded with disco artist Kim Dorell and harmonica virtuoso Richard Hunter. Based in Paris, Hunter teaches journalism at INSEAD, one of the world’s leading business graduate schools.

Dave Kaplan, harmonica
Acclaimed harmonicist Dave Kaplan learned to play blues in his native Chicago. He’s spent over 30 years playing in blues, rock, and jazz bands. Known for blazing fast runs on the harp, Kaplan has performed worldwide. His work as an investigative journalist, meanwhile, has won more than 20 awards. Based in Washington, D.C., he now works as director of the Global Investigative Journalism Network. 

And our special guests:

Throughout the '90s he was a fixture in hotels and restaurants in Miami and Philadelphia, tossing in Thelonious Monk among sets of schmaltzy background music. He is a producer at 60 Minutes and director of the University of British Columbia Graduate School of Journalism.

Bruno Sponchiado, DJ

GLOBAL: Story-Based Inquiry (Eng)
In this session you will be given an overview of the most widely-used investigative journalism method in the world – the only method, to date, that combines conception, research, organisation and composition into a single integrated process. Story-based inquiry was developed within the GIJN, and designed to give teachers, reporters and editors a common language to describe and manage different aspects of the work. It began from the observation that while nearly any reporter can find  information, many cannot turn it into a story. By placing the story at the start of the process, we guide our research and reduce errors and waste. UNESCO, publisher of Story-Based Inquiry: A Manual for Investigative Journalists and The Global Investigative Journalism Casebook, will introduce these works at the session.
