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!

Nivio Nascimento

Coordinator of the Crime Prevention and Public Safety Unit, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime
I have an academic background in social sciences (anthropology, sociology, and criminology) addressing issues related to policing, human rights, criminal justice, gender based violence, crime prevention, rule of law, among other relevant themes.
Between 2001 and 2002, I have conducted my research with the Ottawa Police Service, in Canada, aimed at writing my doctoral dissertation on Legal Anthropology. During this period, I have also attended courses at the Department of Criminology of the University of Ottawa. In 2003, I presented my dissertation addressing police accountability in Brazil and Canada. Ever since, I have been accumulating experience in dealing with criminal organizations as a teacher, researcher, project manager, and program officer.
Between 2004 and 2007, I worked in the Center for Studies on Safety and Citizenship – CESeC – based in Rio de Janeiro – that is one of the major study centers dealing with criminal justice reform in Brazil. In CESeC, I performed the role of representative of Altus Global Alliance (www.altus.org), an international NGO based in The Hague until May 2008 (currently based in New York). Altus is an international alliance composed of six organizations working with criminal justice reform in Brazil (CESeC), Chile (CESC), India (IDC), Nigeria (Cleen Foundation), Russia (INDEM Foundation), and US (Vera Institute of Justice).
Since October 2008, I have been working in UNODC Regional Office for Brazil and the Southern Cone as the Coordinator of the Unit of Public Safety and Crime Prevention – Rule of Law Programme. My duties include project conception and management on organized crime and criminal justice, crime prevention, prison reform, violence against women, among others.
