Global Investigative Journalism Conference

The Global Investigative Journalism Conference is the world's largest international gathering of investigative reporters. The conferences are held every two years. Since the first gathering in Copenhagen in 2001, they have brought together more than 8,000 journalists from 140 countries. 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. Our highly competitive conference fellowships have trained over a thousand reporters in state-of-the-art investigative and data journalism. Attendees have returned home to run groundbreaking projects into corruption and abuse of power, launch investigative teams and nonprofit centers, and spread investigative reporting to where it is needed most. The program has also resulted in 236 stories and 147 presentations in 37 languages in 75 countries – extending the impact of the conferences for months afterward.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Since 2012, GIJN has responded to 15,000 requests for assistance from journalists worldwide. Each day, our websites are visited by journalists in 140 countries, with requests for help ranging from reporting and distribution to security and fundraising. Even GIJN’s founders are surprised at the volume of requests.

We respond through our Help Desk, backed by GIJN's global staff, and our Resource Center, which indexes more than 1500 tip sheets, reporting guides, and videos.

To strengthen our response, GIJN is building a more robust Help Desk, expanding the Resource Center, and building a pro-bono consultancy focused on capacity-building, revenue diversification, and investigative methodology. Over the past two years, we have translated core investigative journalism guides into 33 languages. With over 400 instructional videos, GIJN's YouTube channel attracted over 50,000 views in 2022.
