United in anxiety: Attitudes towards refugees and migrants in seven European countries

United in anxiety: Attitudes towards refugees and migrants in seven European countries

28. 6. 2018

"United in anxiety" - that´s the title of a comparative report about attitudes of central and eastern Europeans towards refugees and migrants. Together with colleagues from Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Croatia, Bulgaria and Romania, we listened to people who are sceptical towards the possibility of acceptance and integration of refugees and migrants. We combined our findings with further existing research and published studies. 

What have the countries in common, how have the attitudes of their citizens developed since 2015 and what kind of deeper roots does the fear of migrants in the researched countries have? You find this and more information in the comparative report and the country reports.
