Global Investigative Journalism Conference programme released
- Wits University
Pulitzer Prize winners, data journalism pioneers and the investigative reporters behind the Panama Papers are amongst the speakers at #GIJC2017.
This is the first time the conference is being held on African soil.
Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz and human rights attorney, Beatrice Mtetwa are the keynote speakers.
There are numerous sessions planned across a range of topics. Although a few sessions are still being finalised, there are already over 150 panels, workshops, and special events, packed with top investigative reporters ready to share their skills and secrets.
The training sessions will include programming and speakers that incorporate the rich diversity of stories and methods of investigation that have emerged on the continent. Cutting-edge reporting methods that are transforming journalism globally — including mobile journalism, drone reporting and virtual reality — will also be covered.
There are only a few seats left at this massive conference. Register and secure your ticket to #GIJC17.
