The United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD) has launched the #CrisesofInequality Media Contest for the best journalistic materials to showcase the key themes of the Institute’s 2022 Flagship Report: Crises of Inequality: Shifting Power for a New Eco-Social Contract.

UNRISD is an autonomous research institute within the UN system that undertakes interdisciplinary research and policy analysis on the social dimensions of contemporary development issues. UNRISD works collaboratively with an extensive network of partners from the academic, policy, practitioner and activist communities in developed and developing countries, with the aim of positioning social equity, inclusion and justice at the centre of development thinking, policy and practice.

The purpose of this contest is to call on journalists to help us increase awareness on the urgency to build a new eco-social contract based on visions of justice, equality and sustainability.

If you are a journalist working at the intersection of social and environmental justice and want to explore the role of elites and policy makers in driving or mitigating inequalities, the impacts of inequalities and crises on people’s lives, and individual and collective strategies to reclaim rights, register to participate in UNRISD’s #CrisesOfInequality Media Contest.

Registration closes on 10 December 2022.

Registered journalists will be invited to partake in a briefing, to be held on 5 October, with the report’s lead authors, Katja Hujo and Maggie Carter. In the briefing participants will receive a sneak preview of the report’s findings, key messages and policy recommendations. Journalists will also be invited to attend the launch event of the report planned for mid-October 2022.
