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!

Guinea Bissau
Allen Embalo is a radio journalist in the West African country of Guinea Bissau, who has spent years investigating the cocaine trafficking cartels operating out of his country. At huge risk to himself, his reporting linked the multibillion-dollar trade to political and military figures, and closely tracked the massive flow of drugs from Latin America into one of Africa's poorest countries, and its on-shipment to Europe and elsewhere. Embalo is fluent in Portuguese, French, and English.
