As part of its endeavour in outlining the challenges faced by news media when covering migration, EJN has developed a 5 point guide for newsroom covering migrations. As previously highlighted in the EJN's Moving Stories report, despite many examples of excellent coverage journalists often fail to tell the full story and routinely fall into sensationalism and propaganda traps laid by politicians.

To help journalists counter these threats, the EJN’s migration guide is a tool for media to use when reporting on migration and to analyse news coverage.
