    Reporting Land Rights – with Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting
    Dates: 15 August – 18 August | Location: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
    Application deadline: 03 July | Programme: Reporting Land Rights

    Apply

    This is an opportunity provided by the Reporting Land Rights programme: Find out more

    Urbanization, resource extraction, forestry concessions, the growth of agri-business -Property Rights underpin many of the major issues that Brazilian reporters cover every day. Yet few stories explore the complex social, economic and political drivers that have left Brazil with one of the highest levels of inequality of land distribution in the world.

    This programme, which results from a collaboration between the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and the Thomson Reuters Foundation, will assist Brazilian journalists to understand property rights and incorporate it in their reporting, whether they are covering business and industry, the environment, urban revitalization, indigenous rights, food security, or a range of other topics.

    Inadequate access to land and insecure land tenure are factors behind rural poverty, urban slum growth, gender inequality, violence and human rights abuses.  But when those issues are controversial or sensitive how easy is it to report without inflaming tensions further – or even compromising your own safety?

    The programme will involve a four-day workshop in Rio de Janeiro from August 15-18, 2017. We will also offer modest funding to journalists with outstanding story ideas on property rights, as well as editorial support to help them realise these ideas, drawing on the Reuters principles of accuracy, integrity and freedom from bias.

    The four-day workshop will feature content on understanding property rights, and how the issue relates to Brazil; journalism skills and research techniques; approaches to building sources in this field; and talks from guest experts.
