Transnational Network of National Platforms

A ‘Manifesto’ to Support and to Underline the Importance of the Migrant
and Refugee Media
Based on the results of this European Symposium a Manifesto will be developed, which can
be used on local, national and European level to support the struggle for recognition and a
better broadcasting environment. This workshop aims to reflect on the outline of the
Manifesto and will look at strategies, which will have to be developed to use the Manifesto as
a means to organise migrant and refugee initiatives in a national platform.
