Abstract

This Report contains the collected works published as a result of the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funded project ‘Collaborative Developments in Children’s Screen Content in an Era of Forced Migration: Facilitating Arab-European dialogue’ (2017-18, www.euroarabchildrensmedia.org). There were five reports, starting with the three briefings on our workshops in Manchester, Copenhagen, and Munich, followed by the Project Report to Stakeholders and, finally, the briefing from the London symposium ‘Invisible Children: Children’s Media, Diversity, and Forced Migration’.
In this collection, the Project Report to Stakeholders is placed first, as it offers an overview of the remaining content. The purpose of all publications produced by the project is to stimulate continued dialogue among stakeholders after the project’s completion.

The one-year project which started in October 2018 explored screen content made for and about children from the Arab region who have recently arrived in Europe. Aimed at ‘Impact and Engagement’, the project was intended to share findings from a three-year AHRC-funded research project (2013- 2016) on screen content for children in the Arab world with stakeholders in Europe, including broadcasters, regulators, commissioning editors, producers, researchers and children’s media advocates.

One of the Engagement project’s major objectives was to explore representations of forced migration and diversity in European screen content for young children – those aged 12 and under. By integrating Arab experts into this process, we created opportunities for dialogue between European and Arab media practitioners, helping to alert European producers to the media needs, wants and experiences of Arabic-speaking children now living in Europe. Drawing on this dialogue, the project was designed to gather recommendations concerning the regulation, funding, and distribution of content for children that deals with diversity and forced migration. It also offers a springboard for further research.
