This report examines the explicit and implicit messages embedded in the media's presentation of issues related to both early child development (ECD) and urban violence in Brazilian newspapers. The media analysis presented here was conducted by the FrameWorks Institute for the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University, with funding from the Fundação Maria Cecilia Souto Vidigal and the Bernard van Leer Foundation. It is part of a larger communication project that aims to document public understanding of ECD and the impacts of urban violence on children in Brazil. The goal of the project is to give those working on issues of child development and urban violence in Brazil a set of empirically tested communication strategies for increasing public understanding of these issues, while also supporting the solutions suggested by research in these domains.
