European Media coverage of the Refugee question – Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed)

As part of the Institute of the Mediterranean’s series of conferences on Migration around the Mediterranean, the Ethical Journalism Network’s Adviser, Jean-Paul Marthoz, who is the EU reporter for the Committee to Protect Journalists, attended a roundtable on the European Media coverage of the Refugee question in Barcelona on 20 June 2016.

The debate will focus on how the refugee issue has been approached from the different European countries, what the dominant narratives are, what are the ethical considerations media professionals need to have when dealing with refugees, and how media professionals have coped with the situation. Journalists who have experience of covering migration will also be taking part.

The roundtable discussion also included an exploration of the Ethical Journalism Network’s recent report: Moving Stories – International Review of How Media Cover Migration.
