In November 2003, national teams in the 15 ‘old’ EU Member States analysed a one-day’s domestic coverage in national and regional daily press, for a total of 10 different newspapers per country. In order to broaden the analysis, an additional week’s coverage in the Dutch news media was carried out. The following question was central to both studies: to what extent and in what way are ethnic minorities (re)presented in the news? This quantitative analysis adopts a new approach in that the same coding instrument was used in all participating countries. The focus was not only on the news figuring ‘coloured’ people, but on all domestic news stories. This inclusive approach allowed for the impact of deep-seated news values and other recurrent news-making practices on general news contents to be compared with news stories about ethnic minorities. European and Dutch news stories’ (re)presentations of ethnicity are compared in this respect.
