Abstract: This paper applies framing theory to the examination of how irregular migration into Europe is represented in media coverage in the past ten years (2000-2009). By comparing and contrasting major newspapers’ coverage of irregular migrants into Europe from the perspectives of both sending country (China), we aim to test for the existence of frames in media coverage of migration policy issues and framing effects on public perception and policy making. The paper reveals how selective voices from various claims-makers such as nation states, international governing bodies, professional communities and research bodies, pressure groups and NGOs, and individuals are used in shaping public opinion and migration policy making.
