Global Investigative Journalism Network members have voted to hold the next Global Investigative Journalism Conference in Hamburg, Germany. GIJN’s member groups also voted to re-elect five current board members who were up for election this year, and two new board members.
The local host of the 11th Global Investigative Journalism Conference, to be held in 2019, will be chosen by GIJN member representatives during the week of the Global Investigative Journalism Conference in Johannesburg, South Africa. GIJN is pleased to present GIJC19 proposals for four cities: Dublin, Ireland, from the Mary Raftery Journalism Fund; Hamburg, Germany, from Netzwerk Recherche; Lima, Peru, from Instituto Prensa y Sociedad (IPYS); and Riga, Latvia, from OCCRP/Stockholm School of Economics in Riga/The Baltic Center for Investigative Journalism(Re:Baltica).
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.
