How do current migration narratives shape people’s attitudes and beliefs towards migration? What’s the impact of those narratives in policy-making at national and at EU level?
This serie of videos aims to reflect on the impact that migration narratives have in different spheres: their influence on individual attitudes towards migrants; their influence in policymaking at national level; and their influence in the political sphere at the EU level. The three areas of research correspond to three of the project’s Work Packages, namely WP5, WP7 and WP8.
In the first video, José Pizarro Carrasco, Postdoctoral Researcher at Pompeu Fabra University (UPF), explains how they conducted their research to assess the impact of narratives on individual psychological processes, and what were the main findings of their research.
In the second video, Saskia Smellie, Research Fellow at the University of Edinburgh, exposes the impact that current migration narratives have in policy-making at national level, focusing on the research they conducted in the UK.
In the third and final video, Luca Barana, Research Fellow at the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI), explains how they framed their research to assess the impact of migration narratives in the political sphere within the EU institutions.
