Combating xenophobic language in the media and fostering inclusive integration of migrants and refugees
Thursday, 15 September 2016, CR5 UNHQ
The UNAOC side event served as a platform to discuss the different measures that have been taken globally to counter negative narratives against migrants and refugees, as well as their limitations, and to explore ways and means of providing positive narratives, and foster integration and inclusion of migrants and refugees within their host societies. The outcomes and recommendations of the event will contribute to the discussions of the upcoming UNGA Summit to Address Large Movements of Refugees and Migrants, especially round tables 4 and 5, and to the UN global campaign to counter racism and xenophobia.
Organized by the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations and co-sponsored by the European Union, the International Organization for Migration and the Permanent Mission of Malta to the United Nations.
