Paper: “Environmental risks and the media – a case study of two mining disasters: Brazil’s Samarco and New Caledonia’s Goro”.

This paper examines two examples of environmental disasters and the politics behind the media’s coverage of the risks linked to those mining operations before and after the accidents. It then asks how this coverage influenced public perception of environmental risks, and proposes a new framework for environmental journalism, that, in combination with political ecology, questions power relationships, development theories and the unpredictable nature of so-called ‘accidents’.
