After Johannesburg: Call for Proposals for GIJC 2019

The Global Investigative Journalism Conference is the world’s premier international gathering of investigative journalists. Held every two years, the conferences have trained more than 5,000 journalists, sparked hundreds of investigations and collaborative projects, and played a key role in the global spread of investigative reporting over the past 16 years. If your organization would like to host the next GIJC after this year’s conference in Johannesburg, South Africa, now is the time to assemble and submit a proposal.

Global Conference, Global Network

As we gather for the second Asian Investigative Journalism Conference, this seems a good time to share again with our colleagues where the Global Investigative Journalism Network and its conferences come from. It was a simple idea at the end of the 20th century — to gather the world’s investigative journalists to share their knowledge with each other — that gave birth to GIJN, which has now grown to 138 member organizations in 62 countries.

Attending the recent Global Investigative Journalism Conference in Lillehammer – GIJC15 — demonstrated the incredible growth of cross-border reporting. Present were not only reporters from 121 countries, but also reporters from the largest newspapers like the New York Times to the smallest outlets like the four-person KRIK nonprofit in Belgrade. All were there talking about their stories and teaching the skills they’ve gained.
