For the New Neighbours project, project partner COMMIT commissioned a series of interviews on media, migration and integration issues to local researchers in different European countries. The talks provide expert analyses and perspectives on the reporting and portrayal of refugees and migrants in the media and complement the country-specific Fact sheets.
