Fact sheets: Country reports on media and migration

New Neighbours presents a series of fact sheets that local researchers have created for the project. These reports provide fact-based insights into the area of media and migration in different European countries. The compiled information is available for Portugal, Italy, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Croatia and Spain. The fact sheets serve as a basis for project communication and address issues relevant to the focus group discussions that will be held in 2020 after the broadcast of the New Neighbours’ new TV documentaries in each country.
