KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Rana Ayyub Shaikh
Rana Ayyub, from Mumbai, India, went undercover for eight months to produce Gujarat Files: Anatomy of a Cover-Up and reveal the complicity of prominent politicians in the 2002 Gujarat killings.
Her reporting also put a Minister of Home Affairs in jail in 2010. Her courage has made her one of the best-known, multiple-award winning independent journalists in the sub-continent.
Ayyub was awarded the Citation of Excellence in the 2017 Global Shining Light Award for the brave and fearless reportage in her book at the Global Investigative Journalism Conference that was held in Johannesburg in November last year.
