Hello everybody,

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 a social scientist with degrees in Cultural Anthropology, Development Sociology and Global Criminology. Over the years I’ve become experienced 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“.
