Jeremiah Opiniano of the University Santo Tomas has a well-researched academic article titled Reporting international Migration in the book Ethical Reporting of Sensitive Topics (pp.251-275) published by Routledge and edited by Ann Luce.  The book is described as aiming “to support all journalists, from students of journalism and individuals encountering a newsroom for the first time, to those veteran journalists or specialist journalists who seek to better their reporting skills.”

Opiniano points out that “Journalism – from news items to Pulitzer Prize-winning narrative stories – has long been reporting about migrants from their countries of origin and from their communities of temporary and permanent settlement. It is thus the mission of journalists to illustrate how migrants/ foreigners/ immigrants live their lives in two worlds. This is while journalists present evidence on how migrants contributed or posed problems to their new and old societies.”
