Awareness and Information Campaigns Targeting Migrants: How ULB and VUB Research Projects Analyze The Field.


The European Union (EU) has been investing an increasing amount of money and efforts into persuading migrants not to come irregularly to Europe. How are these awareness and information campaigns being set up and what is their impact on the decisions of migrants? This event brings together a ULB and a VUB project dealing with this field of research. Julia Van Dessel (ULB) will present her Ph.D. project entitled “What does the EU tell migrants throughout their journey? A look back at 20 years of awareness campaigns to deter irregular immigration”.

Florian Trauner (VUB) will introduce the H2020 project “BRIDGES - Bridges to assess the production and impact of migration narratives”. The VUB team leads a work package analyzing the Impact of EU-funded information campaigns on potential migrants’ decisions.

The event will be chaired by Ilke Adam (VUB).
