Introduction
I am a PhD candidate in Information and Communication at ULB-Université libre de Bruxelles and in Communication and Media Studies at VUB-Vrije Universiteit Brussel. I was a researcher involved in the IM2MEDIATE project (funded by Belspo) studying the representation of migrants in Belgian and Swedish media. My research focuses on the denomination of people on the move in Belgian French-speaking and Dutch-speaking media since the beginning of the so-called refugee crisis in April 2015.

De nombreuses analyses sur les migrations étudient le contenu des médias européens (Berry et al., 2016) ou belges (De Cock et al., 2019). D'autres étudient le discours médiatique (Van Dijk 2006) ou le type de cadrage que les médias utilisent (Van Gorp, 2005).

The media plays an important role in mental representations as it constitutes the main source of knowledge about many issues, contributing to the “common sense” understanding of the world (e.g., d’Haenens & Mattelart, 2011: 237). It affects the way in which the local population will act and react. As is demonstrated in this book, this is even truer...

Governments, news media and public opinion in Europe are increasingly preoccupied with refugees seeking access to Western Europe. Public opinion is split (if not negative) and generally un- or misinformed (amalgamation across ‘groups’ being one of the problems), and integration policies cannot respond to the needs (see cross-country MIPEX results). This project aims to investigate the dynamic interplay between media representations of the current non-EU immigrant situation with a specific emphasis on the refugee situation on the one hand and the governmental and societal (re)actions on the other.
