The Media Diversity Institute (MDI)’s new project, Our Elections, Our Europe!, funded by Open Society Foundations, brings together CSOs in Greece, Hungary and Italy, to engage young people around an issue that will be the key to the 2014 European Elections: migration and the importance of fighting xenophobic speech and promoting inclusive attitudes around this.

The openning quote, like the story, was unexpected. In almost two days of the workshop on diversity, the plight of African refugees in Morocco had barely been mentioned.
