“Media coverage of conflict-related forced displacement:
A cross-section of journalists’ views”

While the number of forcibly displaced people in the world has been reaching new records every year for more than 10 years – 110 million forcibly displaced people by the end of May 2023 – not all crises are covered in the same way by the media. A comparison of media coverage of the situations in Ukraine, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Sudan and Afghanistan shows that they are not all receiving the same attention. Some are less well documented and consequently become forgotten crises. These differences in coverage not only have an impact on public opinion, but also on the funding of humanitarian operations and therefore on the ability to provide assistance to people affected by these conflicts.
During this round-table discussion, humanitarian workers and journalists, some of them refugees, will discuss the media coverage of forgotten crises.
