This content-analytical research evaluates how ethnic minorities are represented in Belgian newspapers and television news. The study focuses on the Flemisch news media, while research at the UCL looks at the Walloon news media. The results of the study will be compared with the results of previous research in 1993. The purpose of this study is to evaluate if it is necessary to adapt the ‚Äúrecommendations for journalists concerning the reporting on ethnic minorities‚ÄĚ, which were established in 1994.
