Many thanks for this, Nadia. I'll gladly share it in my network.

Just two points as feedback: the language in this sentence strikes me as
problematic. "How do African media report – and frame – the current massive
exodus of fellow countrymen?"
Firstly, "massive exodus" is a distortion and is exactly the type of
language used by right-wing, anti-migrant politicians and media. I live in
Switzerland where the right-wing party SVP launched a plebiscite with the
name "Masseneinwanderungsinitiative" with the intention of creating the
impression that the country is being overrun by migrants.
Secondly, "citizens" would have been better than "countrymen". That's not
being overly "politically correct". The majority of migrants may be men,
but let's not exclude women migrants from the discussion (or from the media

Best wishes
