REMINDER: Historical Media Analysis on Migration 2003-2017 (OA edition)


Full edition for public use. The principle of free movement allows citizens of the European Union (EU) to cross EU borders to live, work, or travel in other EU member states. It is one of the “four freedoms”, and a fundamental principle of the EU. However, since the so-called “refugee movements” in 2015, free movement within Europe and migration into the EU are fiercely debated topics, particularly in the media. This dataset allows users to comprehensively map migration media coverage in seven EU countries over the past fifteen years. Data can be used to compare the salience and sentiment of coverage pertaining to the two different concepts of migration (i.e. general migration vs. intra-European mobility), as well as investigate the salience and corresponding sentiment of specific, migration-related media frames. The dataset was collected within the Horizon 2020 Project REMINDER using automated content analysis and consists of annotations of migration-related news articles published between January 1, 2003 and December 31, 2017 in Spain, UK, Germany, Sweden, Poland, Hungary, and Romania. Due to data restrictions, the dataset is divided into two subdatasets (Corpus A and Corbus B) that differ with relation to the included countries, outlets and the time span. Corpus A includes media coverage from six countries and 17 media outlets from 2003 to 2017, while Corpus B covers seven countries and 39 media outlets from 2013 to 2017.
