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!

Sunday Times
Investigative journalist
Johannesburg, South Africa
Stephan Hofstatter is a member of the investigations team at the Sunday Times newspaper in South Africa. His recent investigations into government corruption and police hit squads, conducted with two colleagues, led directly to South Africa’s police chief and several cabinet ministers being fired, and dozens of senior police officials being tried for murder. This year his investigations into South Africans involved in resource or arms deals in Africa that are fuelling conflict on the continent took him to the Central African Republic and the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. Awards include winning South Africa's premier investigative journalism prize, the Taco Kuiper, twice in a row and being named South African journalist of year three times in the last four years.
