Within the RESPECT WORDS project’s framework, each partner will organize, in its own country, during the first half of 2017 a seminar for journalists, communicators and organizations working in the area of migration and minorities.
The aim of these conferences and round-table discussions is to rethink and debate about the role that the media and its professionals carry out when dealing with the information related to migratory processes, that have grown since the end of the 20th century, as a result of wars and impoverishment caused by a political and economic model incapable of globalizing the rights it so much preaches.
The presentations and round-table discussions with journalists and experts in migration processes will analyze the most relevant aspects that contribute to seed hate speech in Europe. The debates will contribute to determine the causes and to approach proposals to understand the solutions that the society, urgently, must demand in view of the humanitarian crises that we are living.
Ultimately, these seminars aim to create the keys to transform, rethink and recover the role that the media must carry out socially, reestablishing their commitments to European citizenship. Therefore, although intended for information and communication professionals, the debate is open to society as a whole because rethinking the model is a task for everyone.
The conclusions of each of the seminars, once analyzed and systematized, will be reflected in a common document prepared by the 8 partners of the project: the ethical code on journalistic treatment for migratory processes and minorities in Europe
