The New Arrivals is a collaborative journalism project that brings together El País (ES), The Guardian (UK), Le Monde (FR) and Spiegel Online (DE) to report on migration to Europe.
Over a period of 18 months, these four media outlets have embedded themselves inside newly-arrived families and communities. In each, they illustrate their integration challenges, their humanitarian situation, their professional aspirations, and the impact of their arrival on both the host and the home countries.
The European Journalism Centre, via a grant by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, supports this reporting. The four publishers have been using longform journalism, photography, documentaries, social video and data to tell their stories. Facebook Live and Snapchat have been used to drive engagement with new demographics in new ways.
In addition to the original reporting, the four media outlets have translated and contributed to each other’s articles, studying and comparing different scenarios for migrants and refugees within the four countries.
