Planning 2017: The GIJN Calendar

Making plans for the new year? We've got nearly 30 events listed of interest to investigative journalists. At the top is our own big event: the Global Investigative Journalism Conference (Nov 16-19, South Africa). Don't miss this one: It's the 10th global conference and our first time in Africa. Have an event to add? Send us an email. Need a break? Be sure to also check our popular guide to grants and fellowships, with over 70 listings around the world.

Essential Source Guides

Seen GIJN's expanded Resource Center? We've assembled hundreds of how-to stories and tip sheets ranging from crowdfunding and data scraping to planespotting. Don't miss our 16 Resource Guides, with essential sources for digging into key beats: business, corruption, food, terrorism, health, human rights, sports, and more. 

GIJN Help Desk

In 2016, the GIJN Help Desk responded to over 800 requests for help from journalists in 75 countries. This year we expect even greater demand. Our staff reached out to hundreds of speakers at GIJN conferences to create an international database of experts. Need help? Contact us here
