Migrant Voices research into media coverage of migration during Covid- 19. The research was undertaken by Nazek Ramadan, Director of Migrant Voices said
“We found that the UK media still has a long way to go before reporting on migration embodies the accuracy, diversity and nuance that it should.”
In a society where two-thirds of migrants say that media and political discourse has an impact on their sense of belonging, it’s important that the media landscape is constantly scrutinised, including the question of who gets to speak.
This becomes even more important during unprecedented situations such as the Covid-19 pandemic, when social inequalities – many of which disproportionately impact migrants – are exacerbated.
