Small-scale expert meeting - Attitudes towards migration and the impact on P/CVE

This meeting will take place via Webex on 19 April 2024 from 09.00 – 13.00 CET

Background and topic of the meeting

In recent years, regular and irregular, planned and unplanned flows of international migration have intensified on both a European and a global level. Immigration is a phenomenon that always shifts the global demographic balance, especially in highly developed societies. It can also affect labour market, housing, economy, public services and communities. Thereby, moments of intense immigration push a reshaping of citizens’ attitudes towards immigrants. The way in which these attitudes develop can be influenced by rhetoric of political parties, (non-governmental) organisations and (social) media coverage, to name but a few. It can also be influenced by narratives of extremist groups aimed at the general public. Strong anti-immigration sentiments can be a cause of polarisation in society, which in turn can create a fertile breeding ground for radicalisation of individuals or groups.
