The Challenge in Mapping Multilingual Media Coverage on Migration and Freedom of Movement in Europe

Our team at the University of Vienna used computer-assisted techniques to analyse 1.5 million news articles in seven 7 languages, building a map of migration media discourse across Europe from 2000-2017. In a post for our blog, Fabienne Lind and Jakob-Moritz Eberl reflect on this challenging, cutting-edge work.

Their work shows that, when it comes to analysing trends in intra-EU migration, the definition of 'migration' that is used plays a large part in determining the results of the research.
