GIJN's dynamic partner in Norway, SKUP -- the Norwegian Investigative Journalists Association -- played host to a record 675 people at its annual conference last weekend. While most were Norwegians, trainers and speakers hailed from a dozen other countries, including Russia, Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Costa Rica, Turkey and the United States. The opening session featured Hatice Cengiz, fiancé of murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
