The international seminar is organized in the frame of the project “Migration, integration and co-development in Europe. The project is co-funded by the Europe for Citizens programme of the European Union - Action: 2.3 – Civil society projects – and it encourages an intercultural dialogue between civil society organizations and citizens from different EU countries and living communities to express their views about EU policies related to migration and asylum and more broadly, about the key priorities and strategic actions needed to face common and current challenges.
The purpose of this survey is to gauge public opinion of European Citizens on current challenges, strategic priorities & key actions for the development of a common EU Policy in the areas of asylum and migration. Another aim is to understand perceptions and attitudes of citizens towards migrants, immigrants and refugees and towards various migration policy options, and to understand the awareness and knowledge about the phenomenon and the new multicultural scenario.
