MEDIVA - Media For Diversity And Migrant Integration Consolidating Knowledge & Assessing Media Practices across the EU PDF Print

The MEDIVA project ( seeks to strengthen the capacity of the media to reflect the increasing diversity of European societies and thus foster a better understanding of immigrant integration processes at a time when social cohesion and integration policies are put to the test by an acute economic crisis.

To achieve this aim, the project will:

1. survey existing studies/projects assessing the media capacity to reflect diversity and promote migrant integration (looking at 5 aspects: content of news, news making and programme production, recruitment,employment, training) across Europe:

2.  create a searchable database of these studies:

3. create a set of Indicators assessing the capacity of the media to reflect diversity and promote integrations

4. assess 30 selected media outlets (TV channels, newspapers, news web sites) across Europe on the basis of these indicators;

5. organize 5 Internat.Workshops to present the database, the indicators and discuss how they can be used

6. create and use a targeted e-mail list of relevant stakeholders to disseminate the project results (database, indicators, their use for policy assessment/policy design and journalist training).

In addition, MEDIVA offers Non Discrimination Provisions in Codes of Practice/ Ethics of Journalists in 27 EU Member States:
