Media framing of immigrants in Central Europe in the period surrounding the refugee crisis

How were the immigrants portrayed in Czech and Slovak media during the refugee crises? What role did the political actors play in creating the immigration image?

A new article by our researcher Jan Kovář investigates the tone of employed frames and the main framing actors before and during the EU refugee crisis.
"Given the framing environment of representation of immigrants and refugees, it is hardly surprising that the public opinion towards them in the two countries is predominantly negative," says Jan Kovář in his article for Communications journal.
