Ethical Journalism Network
Over the last three years improving the quality of migration reporting has been a priority for the Ethical Journalism Network, conducting two major studies on migration coverage, creating practical tools for journalists. The EJN has released a special edition of Ethics in the News in which the makers of Sea of Pictures, Misja Pekel and Maud van de Reijt, write a Report on the Ethics of Photographing Refugees.
Last year the EJN was commissioned by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) to write a report on how media on both sides of the Mediterranean cover migration. The report, which was published to mark World Press Freedom Day on May 3, covers 17 countries in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa and provides recommendations for media and policy makers. In 2015 the EJN published Moving Stories – an international review of how media cover migration – which featured Lebanon as well as 15 other countries.
