Guide to the Global Conference

Screen Shot 2015-10-02 at 1.44.58 PMWelcome to the Global Investigative Journalism Conference! Our co-host SKUP, Norway’s Foundation for Investigative Journalism, put together this magazine packed with information on this unique event. Inside you’ll find a guide to GIJC15’s more than 170 sessions, plus tips on logistics, networking, and special events.

There’s plenty of great reading material, too. The cover story features imprisoned journalist Khadija Ismayilova, and shows how her arrest turned into an investigative project exposing the ruling family’s hold on economic and political power in Azerbaijan. Other stories cover the origins and history of GIJN and the Global Conference, the 50-year history of data journalism, reporting on Ebola, and more.
