Four years after the publication of a Study on Diversity and Equality in the French-speaking press in Belgium, the Association of Professional Journalists (AJP) disclosed new findings in 2014.
The francophone press in Belgium is still largely male-dominated (82.69%) and no change has been reported since the publication of the first Study in regards to gender equality. However, the comparison between the results of the two studies shows that the number of “non-white” people in the French-speaking press in Belgium doubled in three years, from 17% in 2011 to 34% in 2014.
People with disabilities representing 0.16% of the news coverage are still the most excluded social group in the French-speaking press in Belgium.
The study is available in French.
