Migration is a complex topic. Journalists play an important role in unpacking these complexities. It’s their role to give the public a clear understanding of all sides of the migration paradigm.

When a reporter tells a migration story in a balanced and ethical way, he or she is helping migrants to make informed decisions. Accurate information also helps communities and families to support migrants in making knowledgeable choices. And finally, fair stories contribute to upholding the dignity of migrants worldwide.

The Journalist Toolkit comprises a set of creative and engaging educational tools. You can use them for different audiences, and tailor them to their needs. The tools can serve different interests and learning goals. Finally, some can be used for individual learning, at your own pace.
