In Focus: Media – Conflict – Migration
On 4 December 2012, the Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations (ifa)
together with Deutsche Welle (DW) and Bonn International Center for
Conversion (BICC) will conduct the conference “In Focus: Media – Conflict
– Migration. The conflict potential of the media coverage regarding
migration from the countries of the Arab Spring to Europe”.
In Europe, the Arab revolutions have not only raised great hope of a
political and social "spring" in the region, but also elicited fears and
conflicts regarding the migratory movements from the respective countries
to the European continent.
In this process, the media coverage plays a crucial role. By informing
about events, the media stands in a field of tension between policy
interests and its societal duty to secure reliable, well-researched and
preferably "conflict-sensitive" journalism.
Beyond the scope of the media and political actors, academia also has an
important role to play when it comes to the delicate and complex issue of
migration. Academia is supposed to act as a corrective of biased or
distorted societal and political narratives and discourses and thereby
ensure an accurate representation of migration issues.
The conference takes a close look at the media coverage of migratory
movements to Europe from the countries of the Arab Spring during the
revolts. The pictures, articles und reports have created a certain image
that is to be analyzed. Drawing together representatives from the media,
politics and science, discussions will address the discrepancies between
public perception and real events. Experts will unfold the reasons for and
the consequences of that gap and identify possible solutions to the
prevailing problems that are connected with the specific migratory
movements in question.
The conference takes place in the framework of the ifa Research Program
“Culture and Foreign Policy” and is jointly organized by ifa, BICC and DW.
Venue: Deutsche Welle, Kurt-Schumacher-Str. 3, Bonn; 10:00 – 5:00 hrs.
As the number of participants is limited, please confirm your attendance
