Shaping narratives: responsible reporting on migration

About the event

This panel will discuss the critical importance of responsible reporting on migration. We will explore the multifaceted dimensions of migration reporting, examining how narratives influence public perception, policy decisions, and the lives of migrants themselves. Speakers will address key questions such as: What ethical considerations should journalists and media outlets uphold when reporting on migration? How do prevailing narratives impact attitudes towards migrants and migration policies? What role does responsible reporting play in countering misinformation and combating xenophobia? How can journalists effectively balance the need for compelling storytelling with factual accuracy and sensitivity towards migrant communities? Whether you’re a journalist, policymaker, or simply a concerned citizen, this panel session aims to deepen your understanding of the complex dynamics surrounding migration reporting and help you to contribute to more responsible narratives.
