ABSTRACT: The refugee crisis in Europe was one of the biggest challenges in summer-autumn 2015. The problem drew the
highest attention in media and was the discussion topic of politicians and responsible organizations. The current article presents multilingual sentiment analysis of the traditional media content covering the topic. Sentiment analysis forms an integral part
of multifaceted media analysis. The dataset comprises relevant articles from eighty of the most circulated traditional media
sources in English, German, Russian and Spanish, compiled in the course of three months. The temporal sentiment classification per language demonstrates how the attitude towards the crisis differs across the languages and geographical areas. The further sentiment analysis and visualizations of various aspects illustrate in details the distribution of positivity/negativity among media sources and their target languages.
