What image comes into your mind, when you hear the word 'Asylum seeker' or 'refugee'? Will it change, when you can meet them in glossy magazines for example portaited in the role of their dreams, instead of a daily newspaper with a
picture of someone sitting behind the boom of a asylum seeker centre?
This is an example of how media can influence our perception.
