Reportages et initiatives : des façons de couvrir la crise des réfugiés

Lina Chawaf (Syrian Radio Rozana), Alice Petrén (Migration correspondent, SR, Sweden), Thomas Reinke (Funkhaus Europa, WDR, Germany)

How can media handle the drama of our time – the refugee crisis? It started with sympathy for the refugees who have escaped war and oppression. It continued with a clash between this sympathy and the concerns of Europeans seeing a flood of refugees coming. And now it continues with growing tension and polarisation. Listen to radio stations which are taking different roles and positions in this crisis – from following the refugees and serving them with ”Refugee radio” in their own language to action for openness and debate. Moderator: Rod McKenzie (UK).
