Migration Discourse in Slovak Politics. Context and Content of Migration in Political Discourse: European Values versus Campaign Rhetoric


The migration crisis has not only influenced the societies of Europe, their governments, and decisions taken by them but also affected the work of media. As soon as the migration crisis began to escalate in Europe, the old continent has continuously tried to cope with the influx of refugees from the war-threatened Middle East; not only individual statements of politicians and influential individuals but also communication flows themselves, which have created content and expanded context within networks, have become the center of interest. We can assume that in the previous months (especially in the case of the Slovak Republic), political and media discourses influenced societal and individual opinions and attitudes toward the migration crisis. The main aim of this article is to compare the various contents in the Slovak printed media in the context of the migration crisis. The dominant focus will be on analyzing media messages in the analyzed period in the context of creating political (media-based and electoral) discourse on the refugee crisis. We assume that over time, the main political discourse changed, and that the rhetoric of the main political actors also changed over time. The reason for this shift was the national election in March 2016.

Cultural Pluralism and Epistemic Injustice

how colonialism implied epistemic injustice. Colonialism meant occupation of lands and a flow of resources from the colonies to the colonial powers, disempowering the former and enriching the latter. It also presupposed physical violence to keep the subaltern in place. However, colonialism implied more than that. Cultures and minds were also “colonized,” according to Bhargava. When trying to explain and theorize what colonization of cultures and minds means, Bhargava introduced the concept of “epistemic framework.” He defined it as follows: “An epistemic

US–Kenya Economic Relations under Obama and Their Image in the Kenyan News Discourse , Statistical Abstracts (Kenya National Bureau of Statistics, editions 2008, 2009, 2016, 2017) and Munyi (2018 , 54). From these figures it is unclear whether the upswing of US exports was only temporary, but it seems that the volatility of US exports to Kenya remains high. The flow of US investment to Kenya started to rise in 2011 and peaked in 2014. Then, it fell down, but remained above the initial level. In 2016, the overall US stock was the second highest behind India, surmounting the British or Chinese stock ( Munyi 2018 , 59). This is a result of the Power Africa

Desperately Seeking Understanding: A New Perspective on Multiculturalism

. Understanding Multiculturalism from a Different Perspective Trying to solve the sociocultural dilemma that the Western World encountered when a flow of Muslim immigrants reached its territories, Western governments kept working within a traditional Eurocentric framework. While unprepared to manage cross-cultural problems and often unfamiliar with Islam, policymakers developed a seemingly universal concept called “multiculturalism”. A lot has been written to support or criticize it, including such books as Multiculturalism: Roots and Realities , by James C. Trotman (2002
