Article: UNHCR and Cardiff University Report on Press Coverage of Migrants in the EU

Keywords: International, Europe, EU, Germany, Italy, Britain, Sweden, Spain, English, refugee, migrant, asylum seeker, report, reserach, diversity in general, all media formats, tabloids, resources for media Researchers of Cardiff University combed through thousands of articles written in 2014 and early 2015, revealing a number of important findings for future media advocacy campaigns. Most importantly, they found major differences between countries, in terms of the sources journalists used (domestic politicians, foreign politicians, citizens, or NGOs), the language they employed, the reasons they gave for the rise in refugee flows, and the solutions they suggested. According to the report commissioned by UNHCR and conducted by the School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies, the Swedish press was the most positive towards refugees and migrants, while coverage in the United Kingdom was the most negative, and the most polarised. Amongst those countries surveyed, Britain’s right-wing media was uniquely aggressively in its campaigns against refugees and migrants.

Article: XenoClipse

Keywords: English, Spanish, Catalan, Basque, Dutch, Norwegian, German, race, ethnicity, media ethics and diversity, initiatives and projects, online, resources for NGOs, media organizations, community/minority media XenoCLIPse is an action-research, a project about race, media and empowerment. After the successful experience of the consortium’s first collaboration, eCLIPse, the need for a new project involving ethnic minorities as a main target group became clear. This time we would have to go beyond the institutional context of the university, and involve members of (ethno-cultural) minorities through their presence in the media, both as objects and as subjects of information. On the other hand, this new project envisaged empowerment through creating access to new technologies for immigrants and minorities. Our main tool is digital video and its distribution on the net. The idea is to allow people who have difficulties accessing new media and technologies to make and distribute their own information in an easy way and to pass on this knowledge and skills to their peers.
