EMN Spain National Conference on “The importance of narrative in the migration discourse: analysis, impact and good practices”
EMN Spain organizes national conference on the “The importance of narrative in the migration discourse: analysis, impact and good practices” on 1st of December 2022.
In migration policymaking, as in other fields, narrative is one of the main drivers of public behavior, a powerful shaper of perception and a determining factor in the process of shaping public opinion. The way migration phenomenon is communicated has a direct influence in society and the attitudes and opinion of individuals. Language can be used as an instrument of power and through discourse certain behaviors can be induced or recipients can be persuaded.
The conference will consist of two panel discussions that will bring together experts from the academic world, journalists and other media professionals, experts in social media, representatives from the political spectrum, institutional and non-governmental organizations, among others.
Panel 1: Analysis of migration narratives and their impact on society.
Panel 2: Experiences and good practices in integration and combat against hatred.
The conference will be held in Madrid in a hybrid format. Spanish-English translation will be available.
