To celebrate World Refugee Day 2019, the European Union Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) released a new e-learning platform for media professionals who want to enhance their work covering migration. The e-Media Toolkit addresses issues such as ethical reporting, how to treat people fairly and with dignity, balancing accuracy, impartiality and humanity, and the importance of providing contextual, balanced information.
Developed by journalists, the e-Media Toolkit allows media professionals to share and interact across three sections, Learning, Sharing and Training. All resources are based on real-life cases and journalistic dilemmas, and draw on input from major outlets such as Agence France-Presse, Le Monde, The Guardian, Radio France International, France TV, the BBC, and the Financial Times.
The toolkit was developed by FRA in collaboration with the European Broadcasting Union and the Ethical Journalism Network with the support of the European Federation of Journalists.
The e-Media Toolkit can be accessed here.
