The Global Investigative Journalism Conference (GIJC17) is co-hosted and organized by the Global Investigative Journalism Network and the Wits Journalism Programme of the University of the Witwatersrand, with the support of programme’s Investigative Journalism Workshop and the University of of the Witwatersrand. This year’s conference incorporates the 12th African Investigative Journalism Conference (AIJC2017), an annual event hosted by Wits Journalism. The conference is possible because of sponsors large and small, including foundations, news media, NGOs, schools and training centers, and individuals. We raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to bring talented journalists from around the world to these events, and we are deeply grateful to those who have helped support them. In addition, member organizations of the Global Investigative Journalism Network offer invaluable support in providing speakers, participants, and resources.
