We look forward to dozens of workshops, panel discussions, presentations and hackathons, when the 8th Global Investigative Journalism Conference opens in Rio de Janeiro on October 12.
The registration for the conference will open soon, and there will be a number of travel grants available for journalists from developing or transitioning countries. SCOOP may also have travel grants, so please check on your regional website.
It is the first time that the GIJC is being arranged in the Southern hemisphere, and the meeting will coincide with Latin America’s annual COLPIN conference on investigative reporting, and the national congress of ABRAJI, Brazil’s investigative journalism association. The result promises to be the largest ever international gathering of investigative journalists.
