This program, which is a collaboration between the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and the Thomson Reuters Foundation, will assist Indian journalists in understanding property rights and incorporating it in their reporting, whether they cover business and industry, the environment, urban revitalization, indigenous rights, food security, or a range of other topics.
The program will involve a four-day workshop in New Delhi, India from August 6-9, 2019. Modest funding will then be offered to journalists with outstanding story ideas on property rights, as well as editorial support to help them realize these ideas, drawing on the Reuters principles of accuracy, integrity, and freedom from bias.
