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!

Vivienne Walt is this year's SABEW winner for international reporting, small and medium publications. She has written since 2003 for TIME Magazine, which she first joined as a correspondent while covering the Iraq War. She also writes for Fortune Magazine. For both, she's traveled through most of Africa, the Middle East, and Europe focusing on war and conflict, and the human toll wrought by Western business operations, from diamonds to oil exploration. In the past few months, she's written a long dispatch from Baghdad reflecting on 15 years of war, and another from Saudi Arabia, describing the fast-changing economic and social pressures. And she spent time back-stage with Barcelona Football Club to describe the phenomenon of the world's first billion-dollar team.
