Dr. Annamária Neag invites you to Café Scientifique on 4 June at 7:30pm.
You are cordially invited to Café Scientifique at Café Boscanova, Boscombe, Bournemouth, in June 2019. Dr Neag will talk about the findings of her EU-funded ‘Media literacy for unaccompanied refugee youth’ project.
By 2018, more than 80,000 unaccompanied asylum-seeking children were registered in the EU. That’s half of Bournemouth’s population. Refugee children pose considerable policy challenges, with their integration being of utmost importance. Studies show that refugee children have IT skills; however they lack the ability to make critical media choices.
This talk will present a research project that investigated how unaccompanied refugee children use digital technology and social media across three European countries; the Netherlands, Sweden and Italy. Media literacy education is one of the tools that could empower young refugees to become active citizens. We’ll discuss how these findings can assist in developing media literacy for refugee children’s civic participation.
