The Global Investigative Journalism Network (GIJN) is "an international association of nonprofit organisations that support, promote and produce investigative journalism."[1][2][3][4] Its membership is open to "nonprofits, NGOs, and educational organisations" that are active in investigative reporting and data journalism.[5] As of January 2016, GIJN had 145 member organisations in 62 countries.[6][7]

GIJN’s projects include a help desk to provide investigative journalists with advice and assistance, a resource centre with tips, tools, and manuals, and large training conferences that have attracted over 5,000 journalists from 100 countries.[8]

History

GIJN was formed in 2003 as a loose network in support of the biennial Global Investigative Journalism Conference (GIJC), which had been launched two years earlier by veteran journalists Brant Houston and Nils Mulvad.[9][10] The GIJN secretariat was officially formed after participants of the 7th GIJC in Kiev voted for the formation of a provisional secretariat in 2013.[11][12] The organisation registered as a nonprofit corporation in Maryland, United States of America in 2014 and was approved as a "501(c)(3) nonprofit organisation by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service in October 2014.[1][11][6][13][14]

Members

Member organisations include the Center for Investigative Reporting, Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE), International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ),[15] Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP),[16] Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism (ARIJ),[17] Brazilian Association of Investigative Journalism,[18] Investigative Journalism Programme at Wits University,[19] Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism and ProPublica.[20][2]

Global Investigative Journalism Conference (GIJC)

GIJN co-organises a biennial Global Investigative Journalism Conference (GIJC), to bring together investigative journalists across the globe to share their knowledge and expertise with each other and to form cross-border networks for collaborative reporting.[21][4]

The first GIJC was held in Copenhagen in 2001,[9] followed by Copenhagen again in 2003,[22] Amsterdam (2005),[23] Toronto (2007),[24] Lillehammer (2008),[25] Geneva (2010),[26] Kiev (2011),[27] Rio de Janeiro (2013)[28] and Lillehammer (2015).[1][4][29] The next conference will be held in Johannesburg in November 2017.[30]

GIJN started organising investigative journalism conferences in Asia since 2014. The first Asian Investigative Journalism Conference was in Manila (2014) and the second in Kathmandu (2016).[31][32]

Global Shining Light Award

GIJN gives out Global Shining Light Awards for excellence in investigative reporting "in a developing or transitioning country, done under threat, duress, or in the direst of conditions".[33][34]

The awards are presented to recipients in an awards ceremony held every two years at its biennial GIJC events. Past recipients include the Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP),[35][36] Khadija Ismayilova from Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty,[34] Sonali Samarasinghe from The Sunday Leader,[37] and Stephan Hofstatter, Mzilikazi wa Afrika and Rob Rose from South Africa’s Sunday Times.[38]
