Dissemination and Communication
Work Package 10
March 2021 – February 2024
Work Package 10 comprises all dissemination and communication activities in the framework of the project, which implies:
- Designing innovative and diverse communication, dissemination and exploitation activities bearing in mind the key target groups of the project.
- Ensuring a meaningful outreach of all project’s results and outputs, making use of the available expertise and effective communication channels.
- Monitoring the dissemination efforts through Key Performance Indicators and reporting the final achievements to the European Commission.
- Engaging BRIDGES’ main target audiences in different communication activities throughout the project to stimulate the debate on the production and impact of migration narratives among them.
WP10 includes several dissemination outputs foreseen under different work packages, but also a series of communication and outreach activities that are common to the project as a whole, such as: the management of the BRIDGES’ website, newsletter and social media channels; the definition of its visual identity and institutional materials; the production of videos, podcasts and infographics related to different events and research outputs; and the overall outreach of the project in mass media and external public events. All of them implemented in line with a detailed Dissemination, Exploitation and Communication Action Plan.

Why are Ukrainian refugees portrayed as victims while people fleeing other conflicts are portrayed as a threat? Are media further polarising the debate on migration? Ferruccio Pastore, May Bulman and András Földes explore the role of media as producers of migration narratives in this podcast conducted by Mar Sabé Dausà.
What is BRIDGES and what are our goals? This infographic presents the project’s main outputs and objectives in a nutshell, as well as the logic behind its research activities, which aim to tackle all stages in the production and impact of narratives to determine why some narratives on migration become dominant over others.
What do we mean by “narrative”? How are narratives on migration produced and re-produced in the media and policy arenas? And at the individual level? What gaps does the project aim to bridge? BRIDGES Scientific Coordinator and three other experts from the consortium explain their views on these questions.
