GIJC23 – Cross Border Reporting: The Next Steps

Cross-border investigative reporting has come far since its early attempts in the 1980s and ’90s by a handful of nonprofits. Today’s projects are multinational efforts involving mainstream media, hundreds of journalists, and tech-savvy data analysis and security systems. But investigative journalists are in an arms race with autocrats and kleptocrats, who are using a new arsenal of spyware, onerous laws, and harassment against our colleagues, our newsrooms, and our sources. What is the next stage for cross-border investigative journalism? How will we use AI, new media, and secure communications to usher in a new era of global watchdog reporting? To discuss this, we’ve assembled recognized leaders in the field, who bring an extraordinary range of experience from a half-dozen countries.

The Global Investigative Journalism Network is an international association of journalism organizations that support the training and sharing of information among investigative and data journalists—with special attention to those from repressive regimes and marginalized communities.

Our key activities include:

Providing resources and networking services to investigative journalists worldwide;
Publishing in multiple languages and on multiple platforms the latest tools, techniques and opportunities for those in the field;
Helping organize and promote regional and international training conferences and workshops;
Assisting in the formation and sustainability of journalism organizations involved in investigative reporting and data journalism around the world;
Supporting and promoting best practices in investigative and data journalism;
Supporting and promoting efforts to ensure free access to public documents and data worldwide.
