Föreningen för svensk medie- och kommunikationsforskning ( FSMK ) together with K3 Malmö University presents:

Open seminar on Media and Migration 25 th January 2017

The international refugee crisis has had a profound impact on the public discourses on immigration, as well as on the rise of political forces mainly focusing on immigration and immigrants. What role does news media and other form of citizen engaged media practices play in the public discourse on migration and immigrants? What key challenges are news media and media researchers facing?

These are some of the questions addressed in the seminar Media and Migration, where both academic researchers (with various experience of migration related issues) and journalists who are currently covering migration in their daily work, will participate in a round table discussion.
