Abstract and Keywords
This chapter examines the changing patterns in representations of forced migration in the media, as well as the role of citizen and refugee journalists, between 2000 and 2012. It begins with a discussion of some of the central issues concerning ‘mainstream’ media coverage of refugees and highlights some of the factors that account for media misrepresentation. It then looks at some of the studies and campaigns that have sought more balanced media reporting of refugee crises and how the proliferation of new technologies may undermine ‘traditional’ news media hierarchies and allow refugees to manipulate their own media images.
