Created by journalist Alberto Dines, Projor, the Institute for the Development of Journalism, is a non-governamental organization with a pluralist mindset and a non-partisan approach. Its official inception dates from April 14, 2002.
It publishes Observatório da Imprensa (Press Watch), Brazil’s only media criticism outlet. It also devotes itself to activities and projects to strengthen journalistic practices in Brazil. We believe that a free and strong press is a bedrock of democracy, benefiting society as a whole.
