The Global Investigative Journalism Conference is the world’s largest international gathering of investigative reporters.

The Global Investigative Journalism Conference is the world’s largest international gathering of investigative reporters. Conferences are held every two years and are widely credited with playing a key role in the rapid global expansion of investigative reporting over the past decade. By focusing on skills and training, they have helped spread state-of-the-art investigative reporting, data journalism, and cross-border collaboration around the world. Journalists who have attended the global conferences have returned home and made a major impact on such issues as corruption, health care, and the environment. They have gone on to found investigative centers, direct I-teams at major newspapers and television stations, collaborate with colleagues worldwide, and train the next generation of investigative reporters. This year’s Global Investigative Journalism Conference (GIJC17) is organised by GIJN and the Wits Journalism Program of the University of the Witwatersrand, incorporating the 12th African Investigative Journalism Conference (AIJC2017), an annual event hosted by Wits Journalism.
