ReSOMA: Webinar on public opinion on migration

18 March, 10:00-11:00 | Live-streamed webinar

The Research Social Platform on Migration and Asylum (ReSOMA) project invites you to a webinar about attitudes towards migration and ways to talk more effectively about migration to people.

In recent years, there has been an explosion of research on public opinion. The increase in innovative survey experiments allows stakeholders to better understand public decision-making and the relative importance and dynamics of the key drivers of public opinion on migration. Meanwhile, as the debate on migration in Europe continues to polarise attitudes and impact mainstream political discourses, it has become critical to understand what practitioners and researchers recommend for effectively communicating on migration.

This webinar is conducted as part of the ReSOMA project following the publication of two publications: “Who is reshaping public opinion on the EU’s migration policies?” and “Communicating effectively on migration: recommendations and policy options”.

Speakers include:

  • Lenka Dražanová, Research Associate to the Observatory of Public Attitudes to Migration (OPAM) project in the Migration Policy Centre (MPC) and co-author of “Public attitudes on migration: rethinking how people perceive migration”.
  • Leila Hadj Abdou, Teaching and Research Fellow in the Migration Policy Centre (MPC).
  • Blanca Tapia, Programme Manager in the Fundamental Rights Promotion Department (FRA).
  • Hind Sharif, Communications and Community Coordinator in the Migration Policy Group, and author of the ReSOMA’s policy option brief on “Communicating effectively on migration: recommendations and policy options”.
