Migrants, Refugees and the Media : The New Reality of Open Societies Hardback

Edited by Sai Felicia Krishna-Hensel

Part of the Global Interdisciplinary Studies Series series


The large-scale movements of refugees and economic migrants from conflict zones to more stable societies have resulted in challenges both for new entrants and their hosts.

This fascinating volume brings together a collection of media analysis focused on immigration issues to examine how migration has been represented to the public.

Case studies exploring media coverage of migrants and refugees in Europe enable the reader to better understand the complexity of the process through a range of unique and unexplored dimensions of immigration analysis including strategic framing theory; game structure analysis; migration maps and routes; television narratives; rumour-based communication and state bred campaigns.

The insights into the perspective of migrants, the public and policy makers provide innovative methodological and theoretical analysis on population movements and will be of interest to scholars, students and policy-makers working in the fields of migrations studies, international relations, peace and security studies, and social and public policy.
