Round table discussion, February 10th, 1999  - 20.30 hrs, Salon, De
Balie , Amsterdam 


The end of the Cold War affected tremendously the lives of people of the
Balkans and the rest of Eastern Europe. Escaping war and chaos or simply
in search of a better life, hundreds of thousands of Albanians and
ex-Yugoslavs have left their countries, trying to settle in the West. By
doing so, they have often mixed up the categories of refugees, asylum
seekers, and economic migrants, and have affected the perceptions of
communities in Western Europe. One can even argue that political processes
and social realities of the Western hosts have been often constructed in
juxtaposition with the Balkans and its exodus. 

Against this backdrop, and aware of the complexity of the issue, it is of
relevance to consider the role that media play in representation.  More
than a search for culprits in the realm of media and 'purification' of
consciousness, this programme will provide an analysis of the relationship
between media and policy-making at various levels, testing the terminology
used, and considering what is and what will be on the future
socio-political agendas of Europe.
