Pulitzer Prize winners, data journalism pioneers and the investigative reporters behind the Panama Papers will be among the speakers, presenters and delegates at the tenth Global Investigative Journalism Conference. Nobel Prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz and human rights attorney Beatrice Mtetwa will be the keynote speakers for this conference in Johannesburg.
This will be the first time the conference is held on African soil. The conference is hosted by Wits Journalism and the Global Investigative Journalism Network from November 16 to 19.
There are over 150 panels, workshops, and special events.
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 which are transforming journalism globally — including mobile journalism, drone reporting and virtual reality — will also be covered.
