Better reporting of border security and migration issues

Seventeen of the EU's immediate neighbours are taking part in a multi-million euro project, led by the Thomson Foundation that focuses on improving understanding and easing tensions along the borders of the EU through accurate reporting that is switched on and audience friendly. A key part is to build a platform where journalists can share work with each other and channels in the EU.

With the OPEN Media Hub project, we’ll build stories that will inform debate in critical areas like migration, energy and terrorism at a time when revealing the real picture has never been harder or mattered more
