WHAT JOURNALISTS AND MEDIA TRAINERS SAY
ABOUT COVERING MIGRATION

"Media reporting shapes the contours of the discourse on migrants. In the pursuit of the story and the duty to bear witness, journalists may wittingly or unwittingly reinforce negative stereotypes of migrants and disempowering narratives. GMMA is a venue where the media as an industry and as a community can come together to think about how we can tell migration stories better."

"The Global Migration Media Academy plays a hugely important role in training journalists from around the world about the importance of reporting on migration as we emerge from the pandemic. Also, at a time when the rapid spread of disinformation is becoming increasingly worrying and dangerous, it's more important than ever to train journalists on ethical, accurate and properly-researched reporting."
