Reshaping the Narrative

The IWMF’s reporting initiatives are designed to support journalists interested in pursuing stories that go beyond the well-established path of political instability, armed conflicts, and humanitarian crisis in Latin America and the Great Lakes region of Africa. Through these reporting initiatives, IWMF Fellows have covered a wide range of under-reported issues including issues of empowerment, democracy, food security, and conservation efforts. Their work has been produced and published by leading media outlets around the world.

By 2019, more than 250 reporters will have reported and worked together to reshape traditional media narratives and storytelling around complicated regions.
