The Observatory of Public Attitudes to Migration’s team will discuss with Ryan Heath, Political Editor of Politico, Mark Hugo Lopez, Director of Global Migration and Demography Research at PEW Research Centre, and Danila Chiaro, Project Manager at ICMPD, the politics and policy of migration at the 2019 European Parliament elections. The speakers will look into recent changes in public attitudes, party positions, likely future policy dynamics and present a predictive model to forecast the result of the election based on findings of the Migration Policy Centre’s new report, published by ICMPD. The report can be found here in pdf.


Bringing together expertise from the worlds of academia, journalism and public policy, the afternoon represents an opportunity for those interested in one of the EU’s most important, and controversial, topics—migration—to share insights and move the public conversation forward.
