The present dominant tendency of economization and securitization of forced migration to
our region and to the EU as a whole is the subject of a critical analysis in the paper. The global
corporate media as representatives of the interests of the elites of the rich countries are presenting
migrants as terrorists, malicious users of social welfare and dangerous people to the host society. The
global corporate media are enemies of the peace culture. Forced migrants are innocent victims of
conflicts in an unjust social and political order, with military aggressions, civil wars, tyrannical
regimes and ethnic tension, generated by the rich countries and their elites. The adequate solution of
problems of forced migration and the overcoming of violence causing it could be a shared
responsibility of humankind as a whole. Political and economic elites cannot resolve such problems – they can only exacerbate them.
