Welcome to the Voice Matters podcast, a series of discussions on media and communication as part of the Open Learning Initiative for refugees and asylum seekers at the Central European University in Budapest, Hungary. Each week, a few minutes after the academic seminar, students interview the guest lecturer about the subject that was discussed in class. The seminar reflects on the power of media to shape reality and the challenge of making our voices heard in today’s society. All interviews are conducted by participants from the course.
Today’s guest is Eva Bognar, Senior Program Officer and Researcher at CMDS. Eva discusses with Akpe, Roni and Hussein the way in which refugees are being portrayed in the Hungarian media.
