Article: Covering Conflict: How the News Media Handles Ethnic Controversy

Keywords: International, English, media, conflict, ethnicity & race, religion & ethics, reporting. News gathering is a highly imperfect art, writes Ira Rifkin. Problems with basic facts, not to mention nuances, are common. But when you are talking about conflicts that are at their root racial, ethnic or religious, the stakes are higher. This is the stuff riots, wars and deep-seated prejudices are made of, and the news media has an even greater responsibility than it normally does to get it right.

Keywords: European, English, projects & initiatives, media ethics and diversity, youth, online CREAM stands for CREAtive and practical Media education activities.

Together, these activities and events offer students the opportunity to experience work within the media and encourage them to choose studies which prepare them for a career in the media. The activities and events especially aim to interest young people from ethnic minority communities in media careers, as minorities are still underrepresented in media professions. During the project, partners in CREAM learn from each other experiences. They also develop intercultural methodologies and structures for guidance and counselling with the aim of introducing more students of ethnic minorities into media professions.
