“The Spaces of Inclusion” is a report on the role of community media for refugees and migrants. It was published by the Council of Europe. Community Media Institute (COMMIT) based in Austria was commissioned by the Information Society Department of Council of Europe Directorate General of Human Rights and Rule of Law to realize this study.

What role do media in general and community media in particular play for (recently arrived) refugees and migrants in response to their particular needs and with regard to their human right to freedom of expression, which includes the right to information? This is the research question which the authors of this explorative study set out to respond.
