A media crisis on refugees, Amsterdam

datum 22 november 2019 20:00

organisatie Pakhuis De Zwijger

The media often portrays newcomers either as a threat or helpless victims in need of saving. The question arises then if there is a “refugee crisis” or can we rather speak of a 'racism in media crisis'? How can we better understand media stereotypes and how are these narratives influencing policy and political discussions in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and Europe? Next, how do these media narratives then impact the daily lives of newcomers in Amsterdam and in the Netherlands and other European countries? Besides looking at media narratives and political debates in Amsterdam, we will zoom in to the national and European context of media frames and narratives and the impact of these.
