Omidyar Network is a philanthropic investment firm dedicated to harnessing the power of markets to create opportunity for people to improve their lives.
Strong narratives and widespread media coverage are essential for elevating an issue onto the world stage. Global challenges that grab headlines and galvanize audiences are the ones that reach stakeholders, influence policymakers, and inspire change. Property rights is not a topic that has traditionally garnered high profile media coverage or policy interest. How can we change that?
Omidyar Network funded an analysis of over 150,000 social media posts and 65,000 articles using big data, natural language processing, and algorithms to understand the current property rights discussion. Based on this analysis, we are constructing a ‘property rights media barometer’ that will show, year over year, changes in the volume, quality, and diversity of the property rights conversation.
Our hope is that by better understanding the existing discussion, we’re able to help the topic to become more visible in the media. In turn, we aim to raise mainstream awareness, draw in more actors, and capture the attention of policymakers and funders.
