#ForANewDiscourse free from discrimination, racism and violence,


The video made within the scope of Media Watch on Hate Speech project includes a selection of the items that incites discrimination and hatred against Syrian refugees.

In the print media, Syrian refugees are

  • identified with security concerns and ‘terrorism’;
  • accused of being ungrateful;
  • presented as responsible for economic problems;
  • marginalized with ‘us’ vs ‘them’ dichotomy;
  • presented as a threat against health;
  • Syrian women are subjected to double discrimination.
