  • victimization

    Victimization of certain individuals or groups, such as migrants or refugees as well as people living in poverty around the world, is a frequent feature in coverage of migration and development issues in general. While often manifesting as sympathy or solidarity, victimizing narratives tend to reinforce the assumptions of their audience, framing marginalized groups such as minorities or asylum seekers as powerless and passive objects rather than individuals with agency dealing with adversity.
