Demographic change, mobility and migration are the reality of life of the citizens and citizens. Today almost half of the children in preschool children from immigrant families come in Cologne or Berlin. Minorities are majorities in urban metropolitan areas. Reflect this profound change our media? To find the programme makers the potentials and friction surfaces that show up in this process? Use the development as a exciting material for information and entertainment programs that appeal to a wider audience? The appearance of the immigration society in the media has changed. Dealing with the themes of integration and cultural diversity has become more nuanced.
The criticism of the incomplete image of migrants in the media stops still. Still, conflict-oriented programs, stereotypes, and extreme perspectives dominate the perception of immigrants in the media. Their everyday life, their normality find barely figure. How can the media contribute to an increased acceptance of immigrants and for a better orientation in the immigration society? How do the media programme content to different target groups? Could there be a common programmes for all?
