European Media Migration Report: How Media Cover Migration and Intra-EU Mobility in Terms of Salience, Sentiment and Framing

August 15, 2019

Report

This report offers a broad overview of migration discourses in European media for researchers in comparative media and migration studies, journalists, and migration policymakers. The authors focus on the concepts of salience, sentiment and framing to describe dynamics in media discourses in seven European countries: Spain, the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Poland, Hungary and Romania. The report makes use of a semi-automated approach to computational media analysis, and examines a wide range of media outlets over the period of 2003-2017. The analysis reveals a range of key patterns in migration coverage, including that migration issues tend to be more salient in the media of countries that receive large number of immigrants, compared to countries from which people emigrate; that coverage of intra-European migration tends to be more positive than coverage of migration in general; and that security concerns tend to dominate coverage of migration into the EU, whereas coverage of migration within the bloc tends to focus on economic issues.

2/6. Learning from @EU_REMINDER about the impact of migrants on wages suggests small effects on average and potentially larger effects in specific occupations. (and perhaps 'low wage' is a better term than 'low-skilled') #Immigration
