Abstract

Migrations and the Media critically explores the global reporting of 'migration crises', bringing together a range of original interdisciplinary research from the fields of migration studies and journalism, media and cultural studies. Its chapters examine, empirically and theoretically, some of the most important contemporary political, cultural and social issues with which migration is entwined, developing existing and new conceptual understandings of how forced migration and other instances of migration are represented and constructed as 'crises' in different international contexts, including within news narratives on human trafficking and smuggling, asylum seeking and humanitarian reporting, 'climate refugees', undocumented and economic migrants, and in election debates and policy making. This edited volume also examines the reporting practices through which migration coverage is produced, including the rights and responsibilities of journalism and the presuppositions and pressures upon journalists working in this area.
