On the 8th of April and due to popular demand from participants to the fourth virtual Intercultural Trends and Media Platform, the fifth Intercultural Trends and Media Platform once again brings together media, academia, and civil society to discuss media coverage on migration, mobility, and coexistence within multicultural societies in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
During the meeting, The ALF will share results from the latest ALF-Ipsos Intercultural Trends Survey 2020 which gathered the views of over 13.000 people from the region.
The following questions will be used to stimulate the discussion among participants:
Since the outburst of the pandemic in which way the media has covered migration issues and culturally diverse communities within your country?
Which good and bad practices could you share in relation to the portrayal of migrants and refugees within the current context?
What measures are there to promote diversity and dialogue via the media? What role could migrants and refugees and the media play for promoting intercultural dialogue in the EuroMed region?
About the Intercultural Trends and Media Platform
The Intercultural Trends and Media Platform is organised by the Anna Lindh Foundation and the Mediterranean Universities Union (UNIMED) bringing together media, academia and civil society to create a network and to discuss how perceptions between Europeans and Southern and Eastern Mediterranean people have evolved in recent years as a result of the growing migratory and refugee movements, the rise of populist’s discourses and phenomena of violent extremism.
If you are a journalist, member of civil society, or academic who would like to participate in a future edition of the Intercultural Trends and Media Platform, please do not hesitate to contact us (Johannes.Jauhiainen@
