And we’re off! This evening in Johannesburg at the University of the Witwatersrand, we’ll be kicking off four days of unadulterated investigative journalism. For those of you who couldn’t make it to Joburg, here’s how to follow us from home, as well as highlights of #GIJC17.
There’s plenty of activity as we move closer to the Global Investigative Journalism Conference in mid-October. Our just-released newsletter includes an update on some of the great speakers coming to the conference, as well as visa information for entering Brazil, GIJC13’s call for research papers, and a thanks to our terrific partners around the world who are helping make this extraordinary event possible. We’ve also listed ways for journalists, educators, donors, and others to get involved in the Global Network. And, as usual, you’ll find the latest resources in our toolbox section, and a calendar of upcoming events.
You can also subscribe to the Global Network News here and stay on top of what’s happening in investigative journalism around the world.
It’s time again. Every two years since 2001, the world’s investigative journalism community has joined together in a different city, and the results have been extraordinary. We’ve spread investigative reporting and data journalism around the world, sparked the creation of dozens of investigative reporting centers, and led to hundreds of great stories and collaborations. Registration is now open for the Global Investigative Journalism Conference. You’ll find our registration and conference pages available in the three main languages of the conference: English, Portuguese, and Spanish.
