EU Journalists Report on Migration during Workshop in London PDF Print

Dates: 4 – 8 September 2017

Country: UK, London

MAH_Workshop_Sep_2017The most recent journalistic breakthrough story about the culture of abuse and neglect in an immigration detention centre near London happened in the same week in which the Media Diversity Institute (MDI) gathered 15 European journalists at the workshop organised as part of the  Media against Hate project. After the BBC programme Panorama revealed evidence of a serious verbal and racial abuse of detainees, MDI workshop participants followed the story and reported on it back to the newsrooms in their countries. Some told the story of an asylum seeker from Nigeria who was detained in the notorious Brook House featured on BBC Panorama. Another participant produced an article on a Zimbabwean asylum seeker who has been waiting 6 years for a decision of the British immigration authorities.

During the 5-day workshop in London, participants also produced stories, audio and video pieces on topics related to Brexit and its impact on EU migrants. Zoltan, for instance, told the story of Hungarian doctors whose status is unknown after Britain departs from the EU. Johanna reported on a complicated nature of family reunion cases amongst refugees coming from different countries, while Beatriz wrote about ‘stateless people’ who do not have passports or nationality of any country. Journalist Filipe from Portugal produced a radio piece about the refugees turning entrepreneurs in a new country and under new circumstances.

Belgrade_Stop_the_Hate_workshop_1A recent claim by the Serbian Ministry for Youth and Sport that many young people in Serbia would not take part in youth mobility programmes with participants from other countries in the region suggests - if it is to believe the minister - that young people in Serbia live with prejudices, not only about their neighbours, but also about minority groups in their own society.

One of the aims of the workshop Stop the Hate organised by the Media Diversity Institute Western Balkans (MDI) and the National Youth Council of Serbia in Belgrade on 26 – 28 July was to deconstruct stereotypes held by the youth, but also to highlight importance of tackling hate speech and discriminatory language.
