“Changing the Narrative: Media Representation of Refugees and Migrants in Europe”
by Catherine MALLET
This new report is the result of a 12-month project – ‘Refugee Reporting’ – coordinated by the World Association for Christian Communication – Europe region (WACC Europe) and the Churches’ Commission for Migrants in Europe (CCME).
The objective of the project was to improve media representation of refugees in European countries by promoting refugees’ rights to speak on their own behalf and to have their voices respectfully heard and adequately represented by the media. The report makes recommendations including for media professionals and news organisations; refugee-led organisations and groups; and civil society organisations working with refugees and migrants.Europe
