“Mismatch between students experience of discrimination exists and it seems crucial to work with all of them to reinforce the ability to identify discrimination and to find response and referral mechanisms”
"Parents should talk with children about topics as prejudice, discrimination and stereotype, not only against migrants but against everybody, trying to listen to them and to sensitise them on these topics”
Activities and methodologies
In order to create an effective and ground based co creation path and a complex awareness raising campaign, NEMO’s partners carry out a robust action research activity. Action Research it is a reflective process, which implies that “research” usually is combined with “action”in a way that schools and researcher are engaged in solving a specific issue they have researched. Through the research both researcher and community gain a lot of knowledge about the issue and the community ends out reinforced and empowered.
Following a similar template, partners will carry out a desk review of official, academic data and NGO reports on discrimination off-line in each national context The review also summarizes research results on dominant representation of third country nationals in public discourse and on discrimination online
Furthermore, project partners will carry out field research in their national context through in depth interviews.
The sample included 20 students (gender and age balanced, both nationals and with a migrant background), 10 teachers (differentiated by sex, gender, subjects) and 8 parents (differentiated by sex and gender).
- To identify the main forms and manifestations of discrimination of third-country nationals
- To contribute to enlarge the current literature on the issue of fake news and its relationship with discrimination, in relation to a specific target, not well studied in literature, children aged 11-14.
- To gain a better understanding on the use of digital media by target groups in particular in relation to the diffusion of fake news and their capability to evaluate the quality of the sources
- To collect qualitative information on the level of awareness of target groups on misinformation on third country nationals, stereotyping, prejudice and discrimination and on their responses to the phenomenon
- To collect information in order to build a toolkit and a methodology that try to fix some of the main elements that will emerge by the analysis
