Brazil, social-political issues, contacts + ideas
I am working free-lance as an analyst/journalist in Istanbul. However, in June/July I will be in Brazil looking for interesting social, poltical issues to write about both for newspapers, but also for a book project (in Turkish on Brazil). Therefore I am looking for interesting topics, contacts, journalists, academics, NGOs ... topics can be wide range from Arab-Brazilians (Sao Paolo?), women in economy and politics, NGOs active in the protests, but also on environmental issues, human rights, Brazil's foreign policy, coming to terms with the past, coming to termns with slavery/racism etc.
I will be in Porto Alegre, Sao Paolo, Salvador, Recife, Joao Pessoa, Campina Grande (homebase), Fortaleza, Natal ...
