In der aktuellen Diskussion über Zuwanderung spielen die Massenmedien eine Schlüsselrolle. Sie filtern für die Meinungsbildung wichtige Informationen und beeinflussen so das Bewusstsein der Menschen, denen sich die gesellschaftliche Realität zunehmend über die Rezeption von Medien erschließt. Medien liefern nicht nur (Zerr-)Bilder von Migrant(inn)en und ethnischen Minderheiten, die das Denken und Handeln der Einheimischen negativ beeinflussen, sondern prägen auch deren Haltung im Hinblick auf Modelle für das Zusammenleben zwischen Menschen unterschiedlicher Herkunft, Kultur und faith, indem sie Möglichkeiten bzw. Grenzen der Integration ausloten und öffentliche Debatten darüber organisieren. Eine kritische Medienpädagogik und die interkulturelle Medienbildung gehören daher zu Kernelementen politischer Bildung in der Einwanderungsgesellschaft.
