Article: Cultural Diversity and Global Media, The Mediation of Difference, the book written by Eugenia Siapera

“Cultural Diversity and Global Media”, written by Eugenia Siapera, explores the relationship between  the media and multiculturalism. Maintaining that the media actively shapes and constructs understandings of cultural difference, rather than reflecting debates on cultural diversity, Eugenia Siapera argues that we must look to the media in order to understand cultural  diversity and its position in society. The interesting book offers an specific perspective and also it does: -Summarises and critically discusses current approaches to multiculturalism and the media from a global perspective -Explores both the theoretical debates and empirical findings on multiculturalism and the media. -Explores media production, representation, and consumption, incorporating arguments on their shifting roles and boundaries -Examines separately the role of the internet, which is linked to many changes in patterns of media production, representation, and to increased possibilities for diasporic and transnational communication -Contains pedagogical features to help understanding and engagement with the material, and draws upon an extensive bibliography Eugenia Siapera is lecturer in Media and Communications at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. She is the editor (with Lincoln Dahlberg) of Radical Democracy and the Internet (2007) and (with Joss Hands) At the Interface (2004).

Article: Data inadequacies on Racist Crime (Annual Report 2006)

Keywords: All Europe, English, Czech, Denish, German, Greek, Spanish, Estonian, Hungarian, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Maltese, Dutch, Polish, Slovakian, Swedish, Finnish, Portuguese, Slovenian, diversity, ethnicity, race, racism, national identity, discrimination, human rights, EU, report, indicator, resource for NGOs and media, print The EUMC Annual Report 2006 looks at racial discrimination and data on racist violence and crime. It also includes an overview of positive initiatives.
The EUMC finds that migrants and ethnic minorities remain discriminated against across the EU in employment, education and housing. The EUMC report highlights that most Member States lack the necessary data to monitor potential socio-economic inequalities between different ethnic/national groups. As a result, some groups may experience discrimination without adequate response from the state. In addition, only two of the EU's 25 Member States can be said to have comprehensive data collection systems that can reveal the nature and extent of racist violence. Due to the gaps in official data, it is not possible to compare racist crime rates between different Member States. Victims of racist violence may remain invisible and often without support.

Article: Developing Indicators for the protection, respect and promotion of the rights of the child in the European Union

Keywords: All Europe, children, EU, human rights, guide, indicator, report, online Following the 2006 European Commission Communication ‘Towards a Strategy on the Rights of the Child', the Commission asked the EU Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA), in July 2007, to develop indicators to measure how child rights are implemented, protected, respected and promoted across the EU. As the FRA is neither a standard setting nor a treaty monitoring body, these indicators are not intended to monitor compliance with international standards and conventions, but to guide the Agency's data collection and research, allowing it to develop evidence-based opinions. This aims at supporting the Community's institutions and Member States when they take measures or formulate actions. The indicators also provide a good example that EU Member States could themselves consider applying. http://fra.europa.eu/fraWebsite/products/publications_reports/pub-rightsofchild-summary_en.htm

Article: EUMC - Policing Racist Crime and Violence – a comparative analysis

Keywords: All Europe, English, French, diversity, racism, crime, discrimination, human rights, guide, indicator, report, resource for all, print The report provides a ‘snapshot’ introduction to some of the issues confronting the policing of racist crime and violence in the EU25. As the report is the result of a ‘Rapid Response’ exercise, where the EUMC’s National Focal Points were given an initial fourteen day period in which to respond to a research questionnaire, it is likely to contain results that need updating. To this end, the EUMC welcomes responses from Member States’ police forces that present us with evidence of new initiatives and ‘good practices’ that address some of the gaps identified in the report. In this regard the report can be viewed as a ‘work in progress’, as the EUMC will continue to monitor policing practices and data collection in the EU with respect to racist crime and violence.  EUMC Policing racist crime and violence [EN].pdf  EUMC Policing racist crime and violence [FR].pdf
