Reporting On The Refugee Crisis : Daniel Trilling

Recording of a talk by Daniel Trilling in Dublin in March 2016 organised by Solidarity Against Racism and Fascism. For the past 2 years Daniel Trilling, has been reporting on irregular migration at the borders of the European Union. His previous reporting focused on right-wing extremism in the United Kingdom, and he published “Bloody Nasty People: the Rise of Britain’s Far Right” (Verso Books) in 2012.

 

Daniel Trilling, racism, fascism, refugee crisis

 
The arrival of a record number of refugees from outside the continent has been met with a small but significant wave of violent actions by far right groups and their sympathisers. Others have attempted to build broader anti-immigration protest movements, with varying degrees of success. How has media coverage of immigration and the far right affected the development of these groups? And what approaches can journalists take when reporting on such sensitive topics? Is it right, for example, to take a “netural” position when far-right groups clash with their anti-racist opponents?
