Migration, Media and Hate Speech

The EJN will be taking part in a training organised by the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) and the Croatian Journalists’ Association as part of the Media Against Hate project.

The event, in Zagreb, Croatia on 26-27 May 2017 aims to promote fair media reporting, exchange best practices between journalists, reflect on extreme narratives and hate speech around migration.

Around 25 journalists from across Europe who are committed and interested in improving the media coverage of migration and finding new forms of journalism to tell stories will attend the training.

The EJN will contribute to the event by:
