The Migration Policy Centre was commissioned by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development a report, Public attitudes on migration: rethinking how people perceive migration – An analysis of existing opinion polls in the Euro-Mediterranean region, based on the work of James Dennison and Lenka Drazanova from the MPC’s Observatory of Public Attitudes to Migration (OPAM). The study aims to
- • Offer a better understanding of public attitudes to migration in 17 selected countries on both sides of the Mediterranean;
- • Attempt to explain why attitudes to migration are what they are — with an emphasis on the role of media. The report both summarises previous findings and provides new analyses;
- • Provide recommendations on how to communicate on migration in a non-polarising manner.
