June 2022 marked the end of the research project MAD, “Migrants. Analysis of media discourse on migrants in Poland, the United Kingdom, Ukraine, Albania and Czech Republic”. We invite you to read a collection of papers presenting the results of the research, which appeared in the journal “Humanities and Social Sciences Communications” on nature.com.
The project activities, which involved research teams from Poland, the UK, the Czech Republic, Ukraine, Albania and Kosovo, aimed to analyze and compare media discourses on migration and migrants in television, internet and newspaper content published between 2015 and 2018.

- ‘Who contributes more?’ How Ukrainian media construed migrants’ life strategies vs. what the Ukrainian public wanted to know, Liudmyla Yuzva, Anna Tashchenko.

- “Our migrant” and “the other migrant”: migration discourse in the Albanian media, 2015–2018, Elona Dhëmbo, Erka Çaro, Julia Hoxha.
