A Security Threat or an Economic Consequence?
An article by Jan Kovář was published in International Communication Gazette. In the article, the author tests the securitisation of the immigration thesis in the coverage of the refugee crisis in Czech and Slovak media through an analysis of the relative importance of immigration-related frames, and shows that the security-threat frame is the dominant frame in the media, while economic framing is significantly less frequent, and that the security-threat frame is more prominent in tabloids.
