As with previous editions, the Investigative Journalism Education Consortium will be co-organizing the academic track of the Global Investigative Journalism Conference. Here is the official call for papers.
The Global Investigative Journalism Conference, scheduled for this September 26-29 in Hamburg, Germany, will again feature an academic research track. Journalism professors and researchers worldwide are invited to submit research paper abstracts highlighting trends, challenges, teaching methodologies, new developments and best practices in investigative and data journalism.
The conference will be co-hosted by the Global Investigative Journalism Network (GIJN), Netzwerk Recherche (NR) and the Interlink Academy for International Dialog and Journalism.
Designed by journalists for journalists, GIJC19 will focus, as always, on practical skills, technology and training.
