Youth_ConferenceOver 150 young people from the Western Balkans and EU countries gathered at the Connecting Youth conference in Paris on 4 July. They  discussed challenges for  youth in the region, mostly in areas of education and mobility, employment and entrepreneurship, participation and the media.

The Media Diversity Institute representative at the Connecting Youth “Western Balkans Youth Conference”, Ivana Jelaca, talked about similarities between young people in different countries in the region. “Initiatives like the Youth conference are very important because only by increasing the cooperation between young people in the region they will be able to see that they face similar challenges and that the differences between themselves are not as big as their societies and often the media, tend to highlight,” said Jelaca.

Media Discrimination against Roma PDF Print

Country: Hungary

MDI_at_Tom_Lantos_InstituteThe Media Diversity Institute (MDI) contributed to the European Summer School on Prejudice, Genocide,  Remembrance in Budapest by holding a workshop on responsability of the media with a special focus on Romaphobia. MDI Communication manager Dasha Ilic presented several cases of discrimination against Roma in the UK and European media offering advice and tips on how to report diversity in responsible and professional way.

"Journalists and reporters coming from marginalised and socially deprived background should be given space to report on topics that are not related to minorities’ issues. Our newsrooms always have to have journalists coming from marginalised communities so that they help us learn and understand those communities better. But they shouldn’t be given a task to exclusively report only on the communities they are coming from but also on any other topic such as Brexit or the proposed state budget,” said Ilic.

Brexit_MediaThere were threating xenophobic, anti-immigration tones in some British press, mostly tabloids, all along the campaign for EU referendum. Not only that many representatives of the Leave campaign spread the message that “the EU immigration system is immoral and unfair”, but some media outlets including two best-selling tabloids, mostly ignored economic reasons for staying or leaving the EU and focused their coverage on migrants and reasons on why they are not wanted in the UK.

“EU migrants are more likely to have a job in the UK than British citizens”, claimed Daily Mail while the Sun warned about “migrant surge if we stay in the EU”. Both papers backed the Leave campaign. It came as no surprise that hundreds of people hit the streets of some of England and Scotland's biggest cities in protest over the "anti-immigration" tone of the pro-Brexit campaign.
