Main Purpose of the Post
The PERCEPTIONS project is funded by the European Commission as a part of the Horizon2020 programme. It examines how Europe and the EU are seen by people who have immigrated there or intend to do so. It studies what perceptions of Europe exist among this group, how they are formed, whether they correspond to reality and how they influence migration decisions. It also considers how the flow of information could be distorted and whether inaccurate information could lead to a threat to the security of migrants (e.g. through dangerous border crossings) or even national security (e.g. radicalisation).
The PERCEPTIONS project brings together 25 partners from twelve different European regions, as well as three non-European countries. The main objectives of the PERCEPTIONS project are to (1) identify narratives, images and perceptions of Europe held by migrants and people who intend to migrate, (2) investigate how different narratives could lead to problems due to a mismatch of expectation and reality, to migrants and even to national security; and (3) create toolkits of creative and innovative measures to react or even counteract on distorted information, considering social, societal and structural aspects.
