Migration remains a question that is widely and too often hotly discussed and covered, and the media has a critical role to play in advancing public understanding of a question that often polarizes communities. But do we really know what media says about migration? The UNAOC, in partnership with the EJC, and with support from the OSF, is launching the results of the first global data journalism study of media coverage of migration. A network of five journalism schools and research institutes conducted the study through the winter of 2012 and will present the findings.
