The Global Investigative Journalism Conference
13 – 16 October 2011,
The Global Conference for Investigative Journalism (GIJC) and the Global Network of Investigative Journalists (GIJN) provide investigative journalists with the opportunity to systematically exchange information and experience, to connect with journalists and editors in other countries to jointly cope with the work in the context of globalization and to promote development of independent non-profit centers for investigative journalism around the world.
The major theme of the conference will be WikiLeaks and its relationship to investigative reporting.
Speakers include Daniel Domscheidt-Berg, who worked with WikiLeaks from the start, but broke with Julian Aassange, Marcel Rosenbach from Der Spiegel etc. You may find a full list of speakers here.
GIJC 2011 has funds for scholarships for colleagues who would otherwise not be able to participate in the Global Conference in Kyiv. In some cases GIJC will be able to cover all your costs, in other cases GIJC will only contribute.
