The discussions surrounding the immigration bill have revealed and reinforced the strong polarisation of the public debate on migration issues in France, which can also be seen in other European countries. In the light of these recent events and the European election campaign that is about to get underway following the adoption of the European Pact on Migration, and in a context dominated by anti-immigration rhetoric and positions, how will the French candidates in the European elections tackle the issue of migration in relation to other European issues? What lessons can be learnt from existing practices, in particular the effects of information campaigns on migration in third countries? How can other narratives and other artistic media be used?
These questions will be addressed and discussed, drawing on insights gained from the analyses and recommendations of the European BRIDGES project, which analyses the causes and effects of media and political narratives on migration on public debate and political decision-making.
The aim of the event is to present the results of this project and discuss them with key players in the public debate on migration. It will be structured around 3 round tables bringing together BRIDGES researchers, journalists, representatives of institutions and elected representatives, and will close with a convivial discussion.
The event will be conducted in French.
