Public attitudes to migration in the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean

James Dennison and Mohamed Nasr overview public attitudes to migration in Southern Partner Countries (SPCs) and consider their effects on migration politics and policies in the region over the past 20 to 30 years in a new report published in collaboration with the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD).

This is the second of three chapters for the report entitled ‘Impact of Public Attitudes to migration on the political environment in the Euro-Mediterranean Region’. The report forms part of the Phase III EUROMED Migration Communications Study. This report follows Phase II EUROMED Migration Communications Study, entitled “Public attitudes on migration: rethinking how people perceive migration”, which demonstrated that attitudes to migration in the Euro-Mediterranean region seem to have remained fairly constant over time, while the importance of the issue to individuals has changed.
