Children’s Screen Content in an Era of Forced Migration: Facilitating Arab-European Dialogue

PRE-SUMMIT CGMS WORKSHOP: 4 December 2017, 10.00-16.00 including lunch 

BBC Media City, Salford Quays

Workshop Coordinators:  Professor Jeanette Steemers (King’s College London) and Professor Naomi Sakr (University of Westminster)

Europeans involved in children’s screen content face new opportunities and challenges in the wake of recent unprecedented forced migration flows from Arab countries to Europe. This free pre-summit CGMS workshop draws on three years’ research into screen content for Arabic-speaking under-12s to facilitate discussion among European and Arab practitioners about the shared programming needs and wants of Arab-born child migrants and the European-born children who have watched them arrive.
