একটানা চার দিন ধরে প্রায় আড়াইশ সেশনে অংশগ্রহণকারীরা কখনো শংকার কথা শুনেছেন, কখনো আশায় বুক বেঁধেছেন, অনুসন্ধানী নানা টুল, প্রযুক্তি ও কৌশলের কথা জেনেছেন, কোলাবরেশন তথা জোটবেঁধে নতুন অনুসন্ধানের পরিকল্পনায় নেমেছেন, আর নতুন নতুন মানুষের সাথে সম্পর্ক গড়েছেন। এভাবে সাংবাদিকদের নেটওয়ার্কটাও আরো বৈশ্বিক হয়ে উঠেছে। মাত্র চার দিনে!

Welcome Reception | The Muckrakers | Keynote & Global Shining Light Award
Over the past four days, 1,700 journalists from 130 countries gathered in Hamburg, Germany, to share experiences, learn from expert speakers, network with kindred spirits, and find new partners for their next investigations. It was the most diverse and largest-ever international gathering of investigative journalists, and a perfect place to be inspired.
As we gather for the 11th Global Investigative Journalism Conference in Hamburg this week, it seems a good time to share again with our colleagues where the Global Investigative Journalism Network and its conferences come from.
Joining us for the 11th Global Investigative Journalism Conference in Hamburg, Germany? Just remember the word “moin” — plus a few other tips on how to prepare for the conference (including for those who aren’t coming to Hamburg).
Our official GIJC19 photos will be uploaded on the Global Investigative Journalism Network’s Facebook page, feel free to tag yourselves in them. The photos are generally available for republication, with credits to the photographer and GIJN. Please ask us for permission at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Germany’s currency is the euro. One euro is divided into 100 cents. 1 euro = 1.14 US dollar / 1 US dollar = 0.87 euro
(You can search Google for the current exchange rate: for example, type “100 EUR in ZAR” to get the exchange rate for South African Rand.)
At Hamburg airport you can find cash points/ATMs of reliable banks, for example Hamburger Volksbank, Hamburger Sparkasse (Haspa) and Deutsche Bank.
