The Global Investigative Journalism Conference (GIJC19) is co-hosted and organized by the Global Investigative Journalism Network, Netzwerk Recherche and the Interlink Academy.

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.

Interested in becoming a co-sponsor? You’ll reach the world’s most enterprising journalists and appear in the conference program and website. Contact us here. And please join us in thanking our supporters who have made this extraordinary event possible:
