Summary

This project examines the ways in which contemporary forced migration is publicly remembered in the two mediated societies of Finland and Italy. The two European countries, which both have a rather recent history of emigration, forced migration and war, offer relevant empirical settings for examining the remembering and commemoration of the more present-day forced migration experiences. In addition, the project develops a new research agenda in the intersection of media, memory, migration and humanitarian action.
