Organised by the Alliance Internationale de Journalistes (AIJ) and held at offices of the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) in Brussels, the first event of #MyStory involved roundtable debates with around 50 people in attendance.
The debate addressed Europe’s reaction to mass migration and the dangers of sensationalism, political bias and stereotyping in mainstream media discourse.
Over three hours of discussion, the debate offered an excellent opportunity for organisations and journalists working with migrants and refugees to discuss how they can better coordinate and communicate with each other with aim of telling stories about refugees and migrants with more fairness and accuracy.
