Audience responses to migration stories: Voices of African migrants

Migration is one of the key global challenges of our time. The media’s response to these challenges are crucial to shaping and reflecting public discourses and understandings of migration and migrant experiences.

This report by Leicester University was commissioned to examine the nature and quality of media stories produced by journalists supported by the Voices of African Migrants pilot project in four migration ‘Hubs’ in Africa, and how local audiences interpreted and responded to those stories. It used content analysis, interviews and focus group discussions. The “Voices of African Migrants” is managed by International Media Support.
