Abstract: This thesis examines the media representation of refugees and locals in the areas of Eidomeni and Moria during the period of February to May 2016 and 2015, respectively. The analysis reveals that the coverage was diverse, with some media outlets portraying refugees as victims of war and persecution, while others may have hidden stereotypical opinions. Additionally, it suggests that there was no equal representation of refugees and locals in the media coverage of the crisis. While locals were often given extensive coverage, most of media outlets lacked the refugees' own testimonials. This research highlights important questions about journalistic ethics, media bias, and the responsibility of the media to present accurate and unbiased reporting. While some media outlets provided comprehensive and accurate coverage, few gave refugees a chance to express their views and experiences. The findings suggest the need for more inclusive and ethical media practices, especially in reporting on vulnerable communities such as refugees. The limitations of this study include the relatively short time period and the limited scope of the analysis, which could be addressed in future research. The implications of this research are significant, as it calls for greater media accountability and sensitivity in reporting on refugees and other marginalized groups.
