Cross-cultural reporting and EuroMed mobility
The Intercultural Trends and Media Platform brings together media, academia, and civil society to debate on media narratives in relation to diversity and intercultural relations in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
A focus of the discussion will be on the media coverage of migration-related issues and coexistence within multicultural societies in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
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 meeting is conceived as a space for a facilitated discussion to exchange reflections on the topic and to share some initial ideas on what can be done by journalists, academia, and civil society together to support intercultural relations and cooperation in the EuroMed region.
The outcomes of the Intercultural Trends and Media Platform will feed into the broader process of reflection carried out in 2020 on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the Barcelona Process/EuroMed Partnership (launched in 1995) and in view of further strengthening cooperation in the Euro-Mediterranean 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 cultural 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 to promote diversity and dialogue via the media? What role could migrants and refugees and the media play for intercultural dialogue in the EuroMed region?
