Pulitzer Prize winners, data journalism pioneers and the investigative reporters behind the Panama Papers will be among the speakers, presenters and delegates at the tenth Global Investigative Journalism Conference which is only a few weeks away. Nobel Prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz and human rights attorney Beatrice Mtetwa will be the keynote speakers for November’s Global Investigative Journalism Conference in Johannesburg.
This will be the first time the conference is held on African soil. The conference is hosted by Wits Journalism and the Global Investigative Journalism Network from November 16 to 19.
Get ready for an extraordinary event. This year’s conference already has numerous sessions planned across a range of topics. Wits Journalism along with partners from the Global Investigative Journalism Network are still tinkering with a few sessions, but you’ll find over 150 panels, workshops, and special events, packed with top investigative reporters ready to share their skills and secrets. Be sure to take a look at the programme to see what you can expect.
The training sessions will include programming and speakers that incorporate the rich diversity of stories and methods of investigation that have emerged on the continent. Cutting edge reporting methods which are transforming journalism globally — including mobile journalism, drone reporting and virtual reality — will also be covered.
There are only a few seats left at this massive conference, be sure to get your #GIJC17 ticket. Find it here https://buff.ly/2xjoigc .

The Africa-China Reporting Project is hosting a symposium on a Common Integrated African Policy On China with the Institute for Global Dialogue (IGD) associated with UNISA, and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES) on July 20 at Wits University.
As the current co-chair of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC), South Africa is uniquely positioned to guide the consolidation of the African agenda in Africa-China engagement, including the realisation of greater collaboration with the outcomes of Africa’s Agenda 2063.
The 2015 Johannesburg Summit and 6th Ministerial Conference of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) marked the 15th year since the initiation of the FOCAC mechanism in 2000 and nearly a decade since the Beijing Summit of 2006. The 2nd FOCAC Summit adopted two outcome documents, namely the Johannesburg Declaration and the Johannesburg Action Plan (2016-2018), laying out comprehensive plans for Africa-China relations and practical cooperation for the next three years through a range of new ideas and policies.
In line with increasing calls for a unified African policy and strategy, this symposium presents a platform to critically examine the prospects of a Pan-African policy and strategy to guide Africa’s engagement with China, in addition to moderating the implementation of the Johannesburg Action Plan.
Speakers at the symposium will include Dr Bob Wekesa, Dr Paul Tembe, Ms Sanusha Naidu, as well as representatives from the Chinese Embassy in South Africa and officials from the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO).
Date: 20 July 2017
Venue: Senate Room, University of the Witwatersrand (Braamfontein West Campus)
RSVP: Ms. Remofiloe Lobakeng firstname.lastname@example.org
