The Global Migration Media Academy is the platform of a global coalition of migration experts, academics and media professionals working together to provide a range of accessible and free migration courses tailored for media and communication students and professionals to support balanced and accurate coverage.
Recognising a gap in media training on the topic of migration, the Global Migration Media Academy is created as a learning hub that offers classroom and online courses in multiple languages to anyone interested in covering this expansive topic.
Migration has always been a polarising subject, but the extensive fallout from the pandemic has increased anti-migrant sentiment, xenophobia and exclusionary actions. It is an international priority to tackle this head on and media and communication professionals play a fundamental role.
The Academy forms a community of experts through a network of learning hubs worldwide. It committed to providing fact-based, balanced and diverse viewpoints and promoting new voices in the field by eliminating barriers to professional development and learning.
