Through its global and critical perspectives, this book brings together knowledge, ideas and tools to understand the problems and identify effective solutions, best practices and alternative approaches to combat xenophobia in the media and build tolerance and social cohesion.
Although various studies have been conducted on the extent to which the media construct xenophobic discourse against immigrants and refugees and how they represent immigrants, there exists a research lacuna as to the dynamics of the xenophobia construction in the media; the effect of xenophobic discourse of the media and its function; the nexus between xenophobia construction of the media and the social, economic and political conditions; and the impact of the xenophobic discourse of the media on immigrants and host communities. This book adds knowledge and empirical evidence to fill this research gap.
This book will be an important resource for journalists, scholars and students of media and communication studies, journalism, political science, sociology and anyone covering issues of race and racism, human rights, immigration and refugees.
