  5. 5. Work Within Parameters A policy brief is: • A stand alone document • Focused on a single topic • No more than 2-4 pages (1,500 words)
  6. 6. Who Are Your Readers? Ask yourself • Who am I writing this brief for? • How knowledgeable are they about the topic? • How open are they to the message?

  10. 10. Policy Brief Template • Executive Summary • Introduction • Approaches and Results • Conclusion • Implications and Recommendations
  11. 11. DESIGN AND LAYOUT OF A POLICY BRIEF • In addition to having solid content, policy briefs should also be visually engaging • Generates interest in the policy brief • Design can help highlight key facts or concepts • Policy-makers often spend just 30-60 minutes reading information on an issue • Can convey authority, credibility, weight and tone of the piece
  12. 12. DESIGN OF POLICY BRIEFS: Titles, standfirsts and headings • Titles: – Should convey the main idea of the policy brief and include key words! – Make catchy/ memorable – [TITLE]: [Subtitle] is a common structure, but questions can also be effective • Standfirst – One sentence that is designed to generate interest in the paper – Usually appears directly below the title, and the two should complement each other – Especially useful if the title is very straightforward • Headings – To help readers quickly find the information they need, use clear sections and headings
  13. 13. Lead With a Short Statement The executive statement will: • Distil the essence of the brief • Provide an overview for busy readers • Entice readers to go further • Appear on cover or top of first page • Be written last
  14. 14. Introduction • Answers the question why • Explains the significance/urgency of the issue • Describes research objective • Gives overview of findings, conclusions • Creates curiosity for rest of brief
  15. 15. Approaches and Results • Provides summary of the facts • Describes issue and context • Describes research and analysis • Should not be overly technical • Highlight benefits, opportunities
  16. 16. Approaches • Explains how study conducted • Relates who conducted study • Describes relevant background • Identifies method used to collect data
  17. 17. Results: What Did We Learn? • Make content easy to follow • Start by painting a general picture • Move from general to specific • Base conclusions on results
  18. 18. Example: Do the Fences Work? Overall it was found that although the electric fencing does help…it is not capable of completely eliminating conflict. In each…area…technical as well as socio-economic factors affect….success. Technical failures mainly affected the early fences…Other problems resulted from failure to take into account elephant behaviour and distribution patterns. Elephants and Electric Fences: A Study from Sri Lanka EEPSEA 2005
  19. 19. Conclusion: What Does It Mean? • Use section to interpret data • Aim for concrete conclusions • Express ideas using strong assertions • Ensure ideas are balanced and defensible • If hypothesis abandoned, say why
  20. 20. Example: Overall, it was found that although electric fencing does help mitigate human elephant conflict, it is not capable of completely eliminating the conflict. A social factor that affected the success of electric fences was whether the local community supported the project in their area. Community support was critical in several ways. Elephants and Electric Fences: A Study from Sri Lanka EEPSEA 2005
  21. 21. Implications and Recommendations • Implications are what could happen • Recommendations are what should happen • Both flow from conclusions • Both must be supported by evidence Describe what researcher thinks will be the consequences • Less direct than recommendations • Useful when advice not requested • Softer approach but still can be persuasive
  22. 22. Recommendations: Call to Action • Describe clearly what should happen next • State as precise steps • Ensure they are relevant, credible and feasible
  23. 23. Example: A successful strategy to deal with the elephant problem must be much more far-reaching than it is at present. Such a strategy should include a comprehensive land use planning exercise where elephant habitats….are grouped and interconnected…The elephants’ habitat should then be enriched and fenced.

  30. 30. Format piramida terbalik (Mappatoto,1993):
  31. 31. Alasan piramida terbalik: 1. Pembaca/redaksi adalah orang sibuk dengan waktu yang sangat terbatas 2. redaksi tidak mempunyai cukup waktu untuk membaca keseluruhan Press Release.

  32. 32. Kenali “gaya media massa”: 1. Memilih judul yang positif - aktif 2. Paragraf pertama (lead) harus tajam dan ringkas; antara 12 sampai 20 kata 3. kalimat dan paragraf pendek-pendek. 4. Menghidnari kata yang berlebihan serta kata keterangan dan kata sifat yang tidak perlu. 5. Menghindari kata-kata panjang karena kolom surat kabar sempit. 6. Hindari istilah khusus dan penggunaan singkatan. 7. Menjawab 5 W + 1H 8. Memasukkan semua butir yang penting pada awal narasi. 9. Mereka menulis berita (berdasar fakta), bukan pandangan.

Kapan harus mengirim press release? • Proses percetakan dan tiras. • Wilayah sirkulasi. • Jangkauan pembaca (jumlah, kelas pembaca, status sosial, dst) • Metode distribusi (eceran atau langganan)
  35. 35. Pengiriman press release: • Kirimkan secepat mungkin. • Jika pengirim siaran pers sudah mengenal nama wartawan sesuai bidangnya, tujukanlah langsung kepada wartawan tsb. • Pengiriman bisa melalui faksimili atau e-mail. • Konfirmasikan kembali melalui telepon, apakah siaran pers sudah diterima atau belum.

  37. 37. Sepuluh tips menulis Press Release: 1. Pastikan informasi yang akan disampaikan memilki nilai berita yang kuat. 2. Informasikan ke media, mengapa informasi ini perlu mereka ketahui. 3. Mulailah dengan menyampaikan deskripsi berita, kemudian siapa yang menyampaikan, bukan sebaliknya. 4. Tanyakan: apa yang membuat orang merasa berita ini penting bagi diri mereka? Apa hubungannya dengan kepentingan mereka 5. Pastikan bahwa sepuluh kata pertama benar-benar kuat dan memiliki informasi yang bermanfaat. 6. Hindari penggunaan kata-kata umum dan bersayap dan fokus kepada informasi yang akan disampaikan. 7. Sampaikan fakta-fakta. 8. Cantumkan contact person pada release selengkap mungkin mulai dari nama, alamat telepon, alamat e-mail, website, dll. Siap-siap untuk dihubungi ! 9.

  38. 38. Some Key Things to Remember: • Stay away from hype-bloated phrases like "breakthrough", "unique", "state-of-the-art", etc. • Always write it from a journalist's perspective. Never use "I" or "we" unless it's in a quote. • Read lots of good newspaper writing, to get a feel for the style. • Shorter is better. If you can say it in two pages, great. If you can say it in one page, better
