The 2021 Global Investigative Journalism Conference, originally scheduled to take place in Sydney, Australia, will instead be held online this November 3-5.
The Global Conference is the seminal international event in investigative journalism, featuring practical panels and workshops on the latest investigative techniques, data analysis, online research, cross-border collaboration, and more by the best journalists in the field. The conferences have trained over 8,000 reporters and resulted in the founding of investigative teams, nonprofit newsrooms, and headline-making stories around the world.
The last Global Conference, GIJC19, was held in Hamburg, Germany, in September 2019, and attracted 1,750 people from 131 countries.
This year’s online conference (#GIJC21) will feature regional programs, hands-on workshops, multiple language translation, and extensive networking opportunities. GIJN will soon announce a fellowship program to ensure that hundreds of journalists from developing and transitioning countries can attend the virtual event.
