Brazil - Social policy, perceptions and the press : an analysis of the media's treatment of conditional cash transfers in Brazil
This report analyzes perceptions about Conditional Cash Transfers (CCTs) as portrayed and debated in free and independent press in Brazil. The motives behind the study are to contribute to an understanding of the public debate about this type of social policy instrument, given its widespread popularity and potential to reduce poverty and inequality and the replication of this type of instrument in many countries around the world. It examines the tenor of this public debate at two levels: (a) the macro level, looking at overall press coverage and the tone of media articles towards CCTs in Brazil; and (b) the micro level, digging deeper into the media treatment of technical design and implementation features.
