FERNANDEZ, Cayetano  and  CORRAL, Alfonso. Media Representation of Maghrebi immigrants in Spain during the Economic Crisis (2010-2011). Migr. Inter [online]. 2016, vol.8, n.4, pp.73-103. ISSN 2594-0279.

The Maghreb population has been one of the largest groups of immigrants in Spain since the end of the 20th century. This has led to a noteworthy representation in the Spanish media. By focusing on national and regional newspapers during the economic crisis in Spain, the paper aims at examining the treatment of the Maghreb population and certain theoretical aspects of binomial framing of the Arab-Islamic world. A mixed methodology based on quantitative and qualitative analysis of content was used to carry out this study. The analysis concludes that the most common frame is human interest, although a negative representation of this group is offered, a fact that may lead to critical discourse and attitudes towards the Arab-Islamic world.

Keywords : immigration; Maghreb; Spain; press; framing.
