The objective of the seminar Procesos migratorios y minorías: El periodismo ante los nuevos retos, according to the organisers, is “to reflect upon and debate the role of the media in covering migrant movements that, due to wars and impoverishment caused by a political-economic model unable to universalise the rights it advocates, have grown since the end of the 20th century”. The event aims to generate keys to transforming, rethinking and recovering the role that the media can play in society. While geared toward professional journalists, the event is also open to the public.
This seminar is part of the project “Respect Words”, coordinated by EMA-RTV and including the Greek public broadcaster EPT, Radio Dreyeckland (Germany), Near FM (Ireland), Radio Popolare (Italy), Radio Student (Slovenia), Civil Radio (Hungary) and the International Press Institute. CMFE looks forward to keeping you posted about the set of ethical guidelines for journalists covering migration and minorities as well as a radio campaign aiming to put the guidelines into practice that will be produced in the project.
