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
