“An Idea Born Out of Necessity—And It Works!”
– Henrik KaufholzThe Global Investigative Journalism Conference (GIJC), which now attracts more than 500 journalists from more than 50 countries, has been held every 18 to 24 months since 2001. At this gathering, journalists, many of whom confront serious challenges in their reporting, share experiences and perspectives and absorb new techniques. This year for the first time the GIJC will be held in Eastern Europe, in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev from October 13-16. One goal of the 2011 conference is to expand and strengthen the global network of investigative reporters and create a network for Russian-speaking reporters. More information and registration materials can be found at www.gijc2011.org, and information about the work of this global network is at www.globalinvestigativejournalism.org.
