Portuguese journalist wins award for anti-discrimination journalism

Filed under: journalism — news_editor @ 11:43 pm

The European Union has awarded its first award ‘For Diversity, against Discrimination’ to a Portuguese journalist who writes about the discrimination faced by migrant workers in the Netherlands.

The aim is to honour journalists who help foster, through their writing, a better understanding of the benefits of diversity and who encourage readers to consider more closely issues of discrimination and inequality.

The winning article, ‘Portugueses alimentam nova escravatura da Europa’ [Portuguese contribute to a new kind of slavery], was written by the Portuguese journalist Maria do Céu Neves, who works for the newspaper Diario de Noticias. It looks at the issue of discrimination in the labour market, particularly from the point of view of Portuguese and Polish migrant workers in the Netherlands.
