OPPORTUNITY: Pan-African land grabbing expose launched

Call for story proposals:  FAIR has created a partnership with the US based Oakland Institute (OI) to investigate specific cases of land grabbing in Africa.  [Deadline: July 15]
OI has pioneered investigative research in this field that has changed policy, broken corrupt deals, etc.  See more at

We are looking for eight to ten journalists who are highly skilled with a history of innovative investigative journalism, able to travel to remote areas longer periods of time, intelligent, able to speak to diverse audiences (from corporates to displaced peoples), and who are ready and willing to get their hands dirty.
It would be potentially dangerous, and you have to be very committed. French and English languages would be a plus.

Send through a letter of motivation, resume, samples of your best investigative work, references.
FAIR will be providing a grant to the journalists. OI and FAIR will partner to develop the research.
Please send your applications to and cc by not later than 15 July 2013.
