Uneltele de Baza

Cum stiu ca acesta este Jurnalism de Solutii?

Iata cinci criterii de aplicat in momentul in care scrieti sau sunteti producatorul unui reportaj orientat pe solutii. Nu fiecare poveste va putea indeplini toate aceste criterii, iar acest lucru este in regula – dar speram ca aceasta lista va putea sa va inspire felul de a gandi:

1

Se concentreaza in detaliu asupra raspunsului adus unei probleme sociale

Testul aciditatii (referinta la testele care se fac pentru a determina aciditatea unei solutii chimice): Daca articolul nu descrie un raspuns, atunci nu este jurnalism de solutie. Acel raspuns ar trebui sa fie explicat in contextual problemei pe care incearca sa o adreseze. Prin documentarea cauzelor problemei se va clarifica posibilitatea unei solutii care sa poata sa creeze impact si o parghie de manevra.

2

Examineaza felul in care raspunsul functioneaza pana la nivelul detaliilor semnificative

O poveste reusita a solutiilor intra in detaliile modului in care trebuiesc rezolvate problemele, investigand intrebari de genul: ce modele au succes in a imbunatati rezultatul procesului de educatie, si cum functioneaza acestea de fapt? Naratiunea este propulsata de rezolvarea problemei, si tensiunea se afla in dificultatea inerenta de a rezolva orice problema.

3

Se concentreaza pe eficienta, si nu pe intentiile bune, prezentand dovezi disponibile privind rezultatele.

Jurnalismul de solutii are la baza idei – dar ca orice fel de jurnalism de calitate, decizia privind ceea ce functioneaza si ce nu este sprijinit, acolo unde este posibil, de rezultate. Pentru ideile aflate in stadiul incipient, unde singura “dovada” este constituita din afirmatiile observatorilor credibili, cheia este sa nu faceti afirmatii exagerate.

4

Ofera nu doar inspiratie, ci si o patrundere care poate fi folosita si de altii.

Ceea ce face jurnalismul de solutii convingator este descoperirea – calatoria care aduce cititorul sau telespectatorul la o concluzie asupra felului in care functioneaza lumea, si, poate, si a felului in care ar putea fi facuta sa functioneze mai bine.

5

Discuta ce nu functioneaza legat de aceasta abordare.

Nu exista solutii perfecte pentru nicio problema sociala. Fiecare raspuns are exceptii, limite, si riscuri. Jurnalismul de solutii facut cum trebuie nu se sfieste sa prezinte aceste imperfectiuni.

    El periodismo de soluciones está enfocado en la respuesta a un problema social. Ahora, si la respuesta no tiene buena repercusión, de acuerdo con la evidencia encontrada ¿aún se presenta como periodismo de soluciones? Pareciera que el enfoque solo se utiliza si la respuesta, con su respectiva evidencia, dio buenos resultados.

    I love this approach to journalism. Most stories tend to have open-ended angles seeking answers. But, these five points pf focus have opened my eyes to know that stories can also be told from the angle of impact and response and how it is measured.

  • Andrew Hobbs

    These resources are excellent, and I use them in teaching. One question: can you give an example of the 'insight' point?

  • Miguel Herrera Castro

    I'm no a journalist but this approach to journalism is a very interesting angle from which to explore how to communicate NGOs and government's social programs from an insiders view. I think it's always relevant to discuss (in point 2) how the solution can be financially sustainable, what segment of people it targets and what are the intermediate results between the solution and it's desired impact.

  • Chibuike Alagboso

    So does it mean that an amazing idea that has potential to impact a large group of people can be investigated as a solutions story? This is in reference to the last part of point 3 - For early-stage ideas, where the only “evidence” may be the assertions of credible observers, the key is to not overclaim.

“Aceste povesti mi-au adus o mare satisfactie pentru ca prin ele nu am facut doar sa deplang o problema in Philadelphia, si sa ofer cititorilor idei noi. Si cred ca raspunsul de pe retelele sociale subliniaza faptul ca oamenii cauta acest gen de implicare, pentru ca duce intr-o masura mai mare la un dialog.”

Spot the "imposter"

Can you tell which stories are good solutions journalism—and which are just posing? Click on the links to read both stories in each pair, and select the one that you think meets the five criteria. Then click the buttons below to reveal the imposters.

Pair 1 (of 4)

Story B is the imposter!

The word “hero” is the giveaway here. Maggie Doyne obviously is doing good work for children in Nepal. But the focus of this story is her, rather than on the response itself and how it works. In a solutions story, the idea comes first; a visionary leader can be an important character, but that person shouldn’t drive the narrative.

Pair 2 (of 4)

Story B is the imposter!

Solutions stories stick to the facts: Here’s what’s happening, here’s how it works, and here’s the evidence. This piece invites readers to take specific actions as ways to address the problem of homelessness among veterans. It’s not bad for people to get involved in causes – but encouraging them to do one thing or another isn’t the job of journalists.

Pair 3 (of 4)

Story A is the imposter!

Usually, a ball is, in fact, just a ball. This story actually does a good job of explaining how One World Futbol works, but it dramatically overclaims without corresponding evidence. Remember: There is no perfect or even “best” response to a problem; every solution has weaknesses, and those should be acknowledged.

Pair 4 (of 4)

Story A is the imposter!

We call this a “think tank” story: It reveals an idea for a response to the problem of access to higher education – but that idea is just an idea, not an innovation that’s been put into practice. Think-tank stories typically emerge from academic research or the policy realm, and they can be useful in guiding reporters to actual responses that are playing out on the ground. But solutions journalism is anchored in responses that actually exist now.
