In the public debate, discussions concerning migration and migrant populations that convey positive images are still in the minority. However, they help to combat discrimination against these people and contribute to strengthening social cohesion.

In this context, responsible and ethical media reporting on migration must be supported. Reporting on these global phenomena and disseminating messages on the subject of migrant populations without reproducing certain stereotypes presents an ongoing challenge for the media.

Launched in April 2021, Dialogues Migrations [Dialogues on Migration] contributes to the development of an inclusive public debate to change the way that migration is portrayed in the public arena.

It is important to involve all stakeholders in the dialogue on migrations – citizens, migrants, the media – and to create spaces for everyone to contribute their experiences.
