Who’s name is mentioned more frequently in social media content related to refuge and migration: Angelina Jolie, Pope Francis, or Donal Trump? Are some refugee groups mentioned more frequently than others? Do social media discussions respond to real world events related to asylum and migration policy? In this vlog, Anamaria Dutceac Segesten presents some of PROTECT’s preliminary results from our research on social media discourses on refugees and migrants.
By the means of AI-driven technology, PROTECT’s two teams from the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia and Lund University in Sweden will map actors and discourses present in traditional media and social media currently shaping the discourse on international protection on refugees.
