  Add to Calendar 2018-09-25 17:30 2018-09-25 21:00 Europe/Paris EUI in Brussels - "Europe divided? Attitudes to immigration ahead of the 2019 European elections"

Immigration is one of the most important and divisive political issues in Europe today. It seems almost certain to dominate political debate in the run-up to the 2019 European Parliament elections. This ‘Europe divided?’ event will bring together academics, polling experts, and European policy makers to discuss key European divides in attitudes to immigration – between East and West, North and South, young and old, political left and right – and to consider the implications of these divisions for European politics and migration policy.
The panel discussion is coordinated by the Migration Policy Centre of the European University Institute and its Observatory of Public Attitudes to Migration (OPAM), which provides scientific research, public engagement and policy dialogue on attitudes to migration in Europe and beyond. OPAM also provides an innovative web-based resource that maps global attitudes to migration, drawing on the fullest range of existing relevant data on a wide array of attitudes. Our research team will present the updated OPAM web-based resource, overview recent scientific findings based on this data, and provide insights into how attitudes to immigration will influence campaigning and voting in the upcoming European elections. This will be followed by a roundtable discussion about migration politics and policy in Europe beyond the 2019 elections.

The discussion will be followed by a reception.

Participation to the event is upon registration. Given the presence of a large number of distinguished EUI alumni in Brussels, the event will also represent an opportunity to connect with these highly-valued alumni.

Registration: 17:30
Panel: 18.00 - 19:30
Reception: 19:30 - 21:00
