*Teaching the Syrian Refugee Crisis in the DACHL Curriculum*


Thousands of Syrian refugees are making the perilous journey across the 
Balkan to Germany. While other European Union countries have closed 
their doors to these refugees (most notably Hungary), Germany has 
welcomed these migrants. The panel invites presentations that explore 
the media coverage of the refugee crisis in the DACH countries. We are 
particularly interested in how the German, Austrian, and Swiss press 
portrays the migrants and the German response to the crisis. 
Presentations should incorporate the 5Cs.
