Changing the Narrative on Migration in South Africa Development Community: A Newsroom Manual

A conflict-sensitive approach to migration reporting

In a region where there is a challenging, emotional and dangerous conflict over migration and migrants, conflict management and peace building are by-products of conflict-sensitive reporting. The media that practise such journalism can assist citizens to make educated choices that can bring about a just and peaceful society, where
human rights are observed. The purpose of this manual is to empower journalists to report on migration conflict professionally, without feeding the flames of conflict.
