My name is Bram Ebus. I’m a research journalist mainly reporting from Colombia and Venezuela. Since 2012, I’ve been writing academic, NGO and media publications in Dutch, English and Spanish. Most publications feature my own photographs.
I´m social scientist with degrees in Cultural Anthropology, Development Sociology and Global Criminology. Over the years I got experecienced with fieldwork, qualitative and quantitative research, acquired in several countries in Latin America and Europe. My main focus lies on socio-environmental conflicts.
Recently I’ve been working for think-tanks and media organisations on issues that concern trafficking, extractivism, conflict & instability in Venezuela and its border regions.
For a project with InfoAmazonia we won the “Al Neuharth Innovation in Investigative Journalism Award for a Small Newsroom at the 2018 Online Journalism Awards“.
