by Marit Van de Mortel

Ma_Students_2016_Dance_2Open. Curious. Flexible. Determined. Resourceful. These are some of the key qualities of a good documentary filmmaker that a lecturer Rani Khanna wanted to be reflected in her student’s work. Khana started teaching at the MA Diversity and the Media, designed and developed by the Media Diversity Institute and the University of Westminster in September 2016. Since then her postgraduate students produced five short documentaries screened at the University’s Harrow Campus.

Hate Speech Against Migrants and Refugees in the Media PDF Print

Date: 10 February 2016

Region: Europe

Brussels_Meeting_Giulia_Refugees_Hate_SpeechAfter the avalanche that hit a hotel in central Italy in mid-January, a plethora of stories on the endless and brave work of rescuers dominated the media. Italians held their breath during the rescue operation in a race with time. The names, the faces, and the stories of those trapped in the hotel were soon read and shared by the whole country. But it was not until four days later that it emerged that a black man who worked in the hotel as a cleaner was under the collapsed building. No one was looking for him.

It was Faye Dame, a 30-year old man from Senegal who had lived and worked in Italy on a refugee status for three years. Italian media did not overlook the story.

No other victim of the avalanche was given the same description. Why would they, after all?

photo_call_for_entries_MDI_websiteWith countries in the region neighboring Russia facing the growing trends of state- and oligarch-controlled media, fake news, and propaganda, Eurasian audiences are being increasingly exposed to biased information. At the same time, they also face many common challenges, from financial woes to global health issues and the threat of radicalized groups, which require quality objective coverage.

The millions of people affected by these challenges need to understand them in order to make better decisions, strive for better lives, and call for change. New and more creative ways of informing people and broadening the audience for entertaining but informative, high-quality content must be found.

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) and the Media Diversity Institute (MDI) with selected partners and experts from the region will help talented local individuals, media, civil society representatives and others, to develop new ways to inform and engage audiences with entertaining, locally-relevant, high-quality content.

 
Unethical Reporting on Migrants in Serbia PDF Print

Published: 8 February 2017

Country: Serbia

Serbia_Migrants_ObrenovacBy claiming that a group of migrants tried to kidnap a baby as her mother was walking down the street, some Serbian tabloids misinformed the public, thereby causing panic and fear amongst citizens in Obrenovac, a small town near Belgrade. The information about the alleged attack first appeared on Facebook as a post by the baby’s uncle. It was used as a fact and basis for the sensationalist and discriminatory reports on migrants published in the Serbian tabloids Blic, Kurir and Telegraf.

The negative stereotypes and generalisations of migrants as 'ungrateful and unpleasent' quickly appeared in many Serbian media outlets.
