Networking Meet-Up: Conflict Reporting

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Great story projects, investigative techniques, and collaborations have come out of the Global Investigative Journalism Conference since our first meeting in 2001. We know that good networking is key to this. To better connect people, we have arranged a dozen networking sessions, based on interests noted by our attendees in a pre-conference survey.

So here’s a chance to meet your colleagues interested in similar topics. No pressure here: we reserved meeting rooms and asked veteran journalists to host an informal discussion about how we can help each other – through sharing resources, contacts, and story ideas. Be sure to add your name and email to the contact list they pass around so we can follow up!
