“Teach Syrians how to live here, to communicate, how to exchange information and knowledge”. Interview with Monis Bukhari, Founder and Director of Syrisches Haus

Christine Horz | PDF-Fulltext

Abstract: Refugees do heavily rely on (social) media before and during migration, as the article by Anke Fiedler in this GMJ special issue impressively demonstrates. But what happens after refugees have reached their country of destination? Some become media producers like our interviewee, media and social media activist Monis Bukhari from Syria. He is the founder of Syrisches Haus (Syrian House) in Germany, an information platform from and for fellow Syrians who arrived here as refugees. This Facebook group currently has over 132.000 members – a huge part of the Syrian community in Germany. We asked him about his motivation and the goals of Syrisches Haus.

Muslims and Refugees in the Media in Poland

Magdalena Ratajczak & Katarzyna Jędrzejczyk-Kuliniak | PDF-Fulltext

Abstract: The aim of this essay is to review the status quo of multiculturalism with regard to Muslims and new refugees in Poland. We will point to the critical stance of Poles toward refugees in a situation where there is little experience with them. We will focus on the significant role played by the media and public discussion in shaping an attitude that can be described as outright hostility towards refugees. The perception of immigrants, refugees and ethnic minorities largely depends on the image of them in the media because media has become the main source of information about the ‘others’. The essay draws from first results of research conducted in 2015. It contains an exploratory content analysis of Polish media on immigrants and refugees.
