Voorafgaand aan de show presenteren ECF en Doc Next Network de publicatie Remixing Europe – Migrants, Media, Representation and Imagery. Remixing Europe richt zich op vier dwingende case studies van recente media incidenten, die de basis vormen voor een analyse van lokale, culturele en historische verbanden in Polen, Turkije, Spanje en Groot-Britannië die de publieke opinie over migranten beïnvloeden.

ECF directeur Katherine Watson zal het boek presenteren in een gesprek over media en democratie met de Britse-Nederlandse-Pakistaanse mensenrechten advocaat en schrijver Naema Tahir en de Spaanse journalist, oprichter van eldiario.es en co-auteur van Remixing Europe, Juan Luis Sánchez.
