" Journalism should serve the public in many important ways, but it can only do so if its practitioners have mastered an increasingly complex body of knowledge and specialized skills."  

 WORLD JOURNALISM EDUCATION COUNCIL - 2008 
We are a global coalition of migration experts, academics and media professionals working together to provide a range of accessible and free migration courses tailored for media and communication students and professionals to support balanced and accurate coverage.       

Recognising a gap in media training on the topic of migration, we created the Global Migration Media Academy, a learning hub that offers classroom and online courses in multiple languages to anyone interested in covering this expansive topic. 
     
Migration has always been a polarising subject, but the extensive fallout from the pandemic has increased anti-migrant sentiment, xenophobia and exclusionary actions. It is an international priority to tackle this head on and media and communication professionals play a fundamental role.       

The Academy forms a community of experts through a network of learning hubs worldwide. We are committed to providing fact-based, balanced and diverse viewpoints and promoting new voices in the field by eliminating barriers to professional development and learning.
