How to Increase Citizen Support for International Refugee Protection

  • 1. University of Bergen

Description

Conflicts in the Middle East and massive Mediterranean Sea-crossings over the last decade have shed light on a greater need for international collaboration in asylum matters. Such a need was endorsed in the United Nations’ Global Compact on Refugees and in the European Union’s New Pact on Migration and Asylum. Public opinion is often thought to oppose further influx of people fleeing persecution, thus justifying the adoption of policies aimed at curbing asylum flows. However, our representative survey, conducted in 26 countries located in Europe, Central and North America, South Africa, brushes a different picture: public opinion overwhelmingly supports international collaboration on refugee protection and is willing to admit more asylum seekers.
